Description: High quality water is generally associated with forested watersheds. However, intensive forestry activities within these watersheds can negatively affect water quality. In order to mitigate negative effects of forestry operations on water quality, best management practices (BMPs) are recommended. In this study, effects of silvicultural treatments on water quality are examined by comparing a treatment watershed with an unharvested control watershed. Forested areas created less sediment than open areas. In addition, a partial cut within streamside management zone (SMZ) increased sediment yield.
