BIBI4.1: Identify strategies and approaches to reduce the impacts from forestry on freshwater quality
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Identify strategies and approaches to reduce the impacts from forestry on freshwater quality.
Desired Outcome - Reduce runoff and other hydrologic impacts from forestry production.
- Develop a B-IBI forestry component of the Implementation Strategy.
- The Stormwater SI Advisory Team identified runoff and hydro-modification resulting from forest practices as significant challenges for achieving freshwater quality and B-IBI indicator targets. The SI Advisory Team recommended that the B-IBI Implementation Strategy needs to address runoff from forestry in more depth. The Stormwater SI Lead will work to build out this component of the Implementation Strategy.
- The SI Advisory Team recommended looking for opportunities with small forest landowners, and decommissioning federal roads.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
