Description: One of the most important focal points in the interface between intensive land use and an ever-increasing population is water quality. Both intensive agriculture and forestry compete with an ever-increasing population for clean water. While this competition principally occurs throughout most of the eastern, gulf; and western seaboards, it is perhaps most evident in areas like Florida which axe undergoing extraordinary population growth Much of the deep-sand forested flatwoods of Florida serves as the recharge area for aquifem which provide this needed water. Surface water and surficial(perched) water tables from these areas are also being used for nondrinking needs including lawn and garden irrigation with increased use of surface and perched water which arises from or flows through lands where intensive forestry is practiced, comes an increased potential for water contaminated with herbicides or nutrients to be used by downstream consumers. Thus it is very important to know to what extent these surface waters are contaminated by forestry practices. Concerns have also arisen over the potential for damage to aquatic ecosystems from forestry-related contaminated waters.
