Forest Roads: Where Soil and Water Don't Mix
One guiding principle that will help forester s minimize the impact of roads on water quality is a seemingly obvious statement: Roads are horizontal features in a landscape characterized by vertical processes. Erosion mitigation efforts require understanding surface water momentum, planning roads to avoid surface water as much as possible, and working with the elements of the universal soil loss equation--rainfall and runoff erosivity, soil erodibility, slope length and percent slope, vegetative cover, and soil conservation practices.
