Title: Clearcutting and burning slash alter quality of stream water in northern Idaho

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: In the cedar-hemlock-grand fir ecosystem clearcutting of units of varying size (2.6 to 44 ha) and subsequent disposal of slash by prescribed burning resulted in on-site stream water quality changes. But off-site changes were of less intensity. Two of three clearcut units responded in this manner; a third unit gave different results. The physical and chemical components discussed represent the mean concentration per unit volume of discharge (or precipitation input) over a timespan of 21 months following land treatment.

Keywords: watershed management, fire, clearcutting systems, logging, regeneration
