Intensive silvicultural practices have the potential to negatively impact water resources. The effectiveness of forestry best management practices in minimizing potential water resources impacts should be evaluated. The purpose of this study is to conduct urgently needed research on water quality and quantity problems in forested East Texas.


Goals / Objectives 1. Assessing the effects of various intensive silvicultural activities with best management practices on hydrologic processes, sediment movement, nutrient losses. 2. Evaluating the woody debris loadings of Texas rivers including total quantity, transport, and debris budgets. 3. Collecting and analyzing climatic data for research and management applications.
