Abstract:Engineers and foresters are at variance as to the value of a watershed cover for water conservation and for the control of storm damage. However, Mr. Eaton, an eminent hydraulic engineer and in charge of what is perhaps the largest single water conservation and erosion control project in the world, believes that vegetation covering the watershed surfaces is the most valuable ally of the engineer, and that artificial works simply supplement the natural cover for the control and conservation of water. This declaration suggests that foresters and engineers should work together in water conservation problems. This brief paper covers a large field of study and represents a series of conclusions of more extensive investigations.
