Applying the Clean Water Law to Southeast Forestry
Abstract:Control of any water pollution from forest management is required by the Federal Water Pollution Control Act (PL 92-500). Voluntary programs are acceptable in the Southeast. Plans developed under Section 208 of the Act must include best land management practices, priorities, implementation schedules, evaluation programs and reporting systems. A key factor is the assessment of types and locations of any water quality problems. Failure of voluntary plans after trial for a number of years may require regulatory approaches to be taken.
