Water Control Structure and Road Building Techniques

The greatest risk to water quality from forestry operations is erosion from forest roads entering a waterbody. Over 90% of the sediment deposited in streams and lakes from forestry activities comes from forest roads. Therefore, the easiest and usually least expensive way to reduce sedimentation on a forestry operation is to limit the size and number of roads needed to complete the job safely and efficiently.
