Water Quality Changes due to Site Conversion in Coastal South Carolina
Abstract:A 5,900 acre poorly drained watershed on the South Carolina coast is being converted from natural hardwood forest to loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) plantation. Water samples were collected at 20 sampling points after each of 14 rainstorms during a 2-year study period. Dissolved oxygen and pH levels were slightly higher in the plantation drainage than in the hardwood drainage, but overall water quality was not significantly changed by the conversion process. South. J. Appl. For. 10:134-36, Aug. 1986.
