Foreword -- Preface -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- Limitations of previous research approaches -- CRC research framework -- Project objectives -- Data collection -- Presenting the research findings -- I. Sediment and runoff sources -- The main sources of sediment -- Runoff characteristics of sediment sources -- Differences in erosion rates: roads and general harvesting areas -- Differences in erosion rates: unsealed roads -- 137Cs tracer evidence: sediment losses and gains -- How does soil type affect erosion rates? -- How long do tracks and logged areas take to recover? -- II. Sediment-delivery pathways -- Main pathways for sediments to reach streams -- Siting roads away from streams -- Spacing drains to control runoff delivery -- How much sediment do these pathways deliver to streams? -- III. Best management practices -- Is road and track drainage effective? -- Trapping sediment in vegetated areas -- Do best management practices protect the whole catchment? -- What challenges face the logging industry in terms of water protection? -- Summary -- Glossary/abbreviations -- Further reading.
This report presents on overview of our research findings on the management of sediment sources and delivery pathways in forestry environments. Efficient communication of such research outcomes will help forest managers and catchment management agencies to more effectively protect water quality in their catchments. This CRC Industry Report is designed to provide industry practitioners with up-to-date and accurate information for managing forest sediment processes. The work reported here is the result of cooperative research between the CRC for Catchment Hydrology; CSIRO Land and Water; NSW Department of Land and Water Conservation; Department of Natural Resources and Environment, Victoria; CSIRO Forests and Forest Products; and State Forests of NSW.
