|Series: Forest Investment Account (FIA) - Land Base Investment Program|
|This was the first phase of a watershed indicators project, per Sections 4.2 and 4.3 of the FIA Deactivation, Landslide & Gully Projects Standard. The Aquatic Biological and Physical Monitoring component also applies to the Phase. (ref. Monitoring Land Use Impacts on Fish Sustainability in Forest Environments, Gustavson and Brown, 2002).|
The overall objective was to further watershed sustainability objectives at the management unit level by developing sustainability indicators. Specific project objectives of this phase were as follows:
• Complete overview level inventories to provide data for planning of future FIA projects, and to develop physical watershed indicators (to be done in Phase 2).
• Identify restoration opportunities and priorities for road deactivation, riparian assessments and in-stream habitat assessments.
