Subject: Hydrology
Series: Land Management Report
Other details:  Published 1984. Hardcopy is available.


The potential techniques for the rehabilitation of small streams which have been degraded by mass wasting on the Queen Charlotte Islands are reviewed. Experience with possible rehabilitation techniques in other parts of the Pacific Northwest is summarized and suggestions on their applicability for Queen Charlotte Islands streams are made. It is stressed that stream rehabilitation is not an alternative to sound habitat protection. Stream rehabilitation should be considered only after an assessment of the factors actually limiting fish production is made. This report summarizes studies and literature results to the end of 1981.
