Headwater Highways-A New Forest Menace
Abstract:Although few specific data are available on the subject it is clearly evident to the casual observer that highway construction in headwater areas often accelerates run-off and erosion. Many readers undoubtedly will disagree with some of the author's arguments. The article, however, should stimulate interest in what probably already is an important problem, and one that will become more serious as additional highways are constructed.
