    Forests are the most effective land cover for maintenance of water quality. They serve as natural sponges, collecting and filtering rainfall and releasing it slowly into streams. Forest cover has been directly linked to drinking water treatment costs – the more forest in a source water watershed, the lower the treatment costs. volume and quality of water flowing into that particular river or lake. All land owners, including forest owners, have a responsibility to play their role in conserving and enhancing overall catchment quality. 1 Forestry and Water Quality Guidelines An aquatic zone is .

    Forest roads can be a major source of muddy water in a forest. A properly designed, built and maintained forest road diverts rainwater from the road onto the forest floor, where it can be absorbed and filtered before flowing into a stream. Well-engineered and properly located forest roads and stream crossings reduce effects on water quality. influence water quality. Prior to the enactment of the Clean Water Act (CWA) in , research on forest water quality examined the impacts of forestry activities characterized by the absence of controls over how and where trees were cut or how they were removed. Since that time, however, water-quality research has begun to focus on the.

    Oklahoma Forestry Services' general approach to the development and implementation of Best Management Practice Guideline is one of education, technical assistance and cooperation. Protection of forest water quality is the responsibility of the landowner, the logger, the land manager, and all others applying practices or using the forest. The following publications are available free or for a nominal charge from most NCFS offices. Almost all of the publications listed are produced by NCFS except where noted.

Although the quality of water draining forested watersheds is typically the best in the nation, some forest management practices can seriously impair stream water quality.

Sediment is the main concern, although nitrate and water temperature impacts are also of concern in some locations. The overall results of the study indicate that a good standard of forestry practice, including buffer widths of up to 50 m for aerial applications and 10 m for hand applications, was sufficient to protect water quality from fertiliser treatments.

Forestry and Water Quality Research has identified that there are three main potential impacts of forestry on water resources in Ireland i.e. acidification, siltation and eutrophication. Water shortages due to the presence of forests have generally not been an issue in Ireland as we experience ample rainfall throughout the year.

Forests are the source for the highest quality and most sustainable water resources (Neary, et al. Forested land cover, even multiuse forests that include timber production, have been found to be positively correlated to good water quality.

Water Quality at the Virginia Department of Forestry Forests provide a vital role in preserving water quality. The Virginia Department of Forestry (VDOF) inspects logging jobs to ensure that best management practices are being followed by loggers so that water quality isn't compromised by their logging activities.

Water from the soil enters their roots and is carried up the tree’s trunk all the way to the leaves. Trees serve as natural sponges, collecting and filtering rainfall and releasing it slowly into streams and rivers, and are the most effective land cover for maintenance of water quality.

Forests and woodlands have a close relationship with our water resources, and forest management and water quality are closely linked. It is widely recognised that sustainably managed forests play an important role in maintaining water quality.
