Forest landowners and loggers: Working together to protect water quality

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle


One of the most intensive forest operations and has large potential in producing significant impacts to water quality is logging. Forest landowners and loggers are working together in protecting water quality. States with significant timber production have specified Best Management Practices (BMPs) in protecting water quality. These states also have logger education programs on water quality and BMPs. Present in all timber-producing states, these programs aim to improve the professionalism of the logging industry and all have training programs on water quality protection. These programs cover education on the types and sources of timber harvest pollution and training on the use of BMPs. Loggers together with foresters and other natural resource professionals, can become proficient in the use of BMPs in protecting water quality.
