Sources of Nonpoint Source Water Pollution in forestry and silviculture:

- Timber harvesting

- Roads

- Wildfire

- Recreation


Slide3 l.jpg

Logging without using Best Management Practices (BMPs) can damage the watershed and the forest itself.






Slide8 l.jpg

After heavy rain, land stripped of cover can create a mud bank clogging our waterways and reservoirs with sediment.


Slide9 l.jpg

Creating trails or roads using off-road vehicles or bikes destroys ground cover and creates ideal situations for erosion.




Slide12 l.jpg

Careful logging can enhance forests. Follow the harvesting guidelines designed for the topography, soil type and season.




Slide15 l.jpg

Streamside management zones at least 50 feet from any water body, create a natural sediment filter using a riparian “green zone--” a recommended practice for forests, farms and urban areas.


Slide16 l.jpg

Forest roads and stream crossings can be designed for all seasons to protect the watershed.


Slide17 l.jpg

Practice fire safety as well as all “leave no trace” principles when enjoying outdoor recreation.


Slide18 l.jpg

Camp or travel on marked trails or durable surfaces to protect the land surface and the water.
