Title: Review of: An analysis of flooding in Elk River and Freshwater Creek watersheds, Humboldt County, California (prepared by The Pacific Lumber Company, Scotia, California)

Author: Reid, L. M.;

Date: 1999

Source: Unpublished review prepared for the North Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board. USDA Forest Service, Pacific Southwest Research Station, Redwood Sciences Laboratory, Arcata, California. 29 p.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The reviewed report (PL 1999) attempts to demonstrate that logging conducted over the past decade or so in Freshwater and Elk watersheds has not caused increased flooding in downstream portions of the watersheds. However, most of the report's sections include information that supports the hypothesis that logging has aggravated flood hazard, produce conclusions that contradict field evidence or recently obtained information, or contain analyses that are insufficient or invalid in their present form.

Keywords: PSW4351, water quality, watersheds, logging, sediment, downstream flooding, aggradation
