Overview

This volume features more than forty peer-reviewed papers of current approaches and new techniques to watershed management in the United States. Watershed management in the forest industry, urban watersheds, and land use effects are detailed, as are the runoff process, sediment, and non-profit sources. In addition, the book examines the Watershed Protection Program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and various standards on inter-governmental regulations within watersheds.
