Description: After the chaparral cover of the mountain watersheds in southern California is burned, damage is usually done during winter storms by increased runoff and erosion debris from the denuded area. The damage is done not only to the works of man, but to the watershed itself. Improvements that most often suffer tangible damage include water storage and diversion structures; roads, trails, railroads, and public utility lines; agricultural land; campgrounds , cabins, homes, and even whole communities. Other tangible losses are incurred through the wastage of flood water by-passed to the ocean because of its high silt content – water that would normally have been used directly or conserved in under ground basins through water- spreading grounds.
