In 1995, British Columbia implemented a Forest Practices Code that made watershed assessment mandatory in community watersheds and on selected high-value fish streams. A guidebook was published in 1995 to prescribe the method by which watershed assessment was to take place. The hydrologists who developed this guidebook based the procedure on their professional opinions of the manner in which hydrologic processes are altered by road-building and logging. There was a need to verify the guidebook with research. A research program was put in place in the Nelson Forest Region to verify various concepts that were incorporated into the guidebook. Also, research programs were put in place elsewhere in the interior to better understand hydrologic processes that are occurring in interior watersheds. This workshop has been organized to update those who do the assessments and those who use the assessments on the most recent research findings.
