Title: Water quality of some logged and unlogged California streams

Author: Kopperdahl, Fredric R.; Burns, James W.; Smith, Gary E.;

Date: 1971

Source: Inland Fisheries Administrative Rept. No. 71-12. California Department of Fish and Game, Sacramento, California. 19 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Water quality was monitored in 1968 and 1969 in six coastal streams in northern California, four of which were subjected to logging and/or road building (Bummer Lake Creek, South Fork Yager Creek, Little North Fork Noyo River, and South Fork Caspar Creek), while the others remained undisturbed (Godwood Creek and North Fork Caspar Creek). The purposes of this study were to characterize the water quality of the streams, to determine if the logging and road construction drastically altered water quality, and to collect water quality data which could be tested for predicting stream carrying capacities for salmonids.

Keywords: PSW4351, Caspar Creek, water quality, streams, salmonids, turbidity, logging, water monitoring
