Description: Cumulative effects result from the combined impact of multiple activities over space and time. Land and aquatic resource managers are particularly concerned with cumulative watershed effects (CWEs). CWEs can encompass a broad range of concerns, but primary issues are changes in runoff, water quality, channel morphology, and aquatic ecosystems at the watershed scale (Reid 1993). CWEs are a class of cumulative effects defined by multiple sources within a watershed that share a common delivery mechanism, the drainage network (fig. 1).
