Abstract: Public and professional awareness of the impacts of forest resource development on fishery and watershed values has increased dramatically over the past decade. Proper planning and implementation of soil erosion and sediment control procedures must be an integral part of forest resource management. In cooperation with the Ministry of Forests and Fletcher Challenge Canada Ltd., Terrasol has completed the development of a formal approach to soil erosion and sediment control planning for managed forest watersheds in British Columbia. The approach presented in this paper has been implemented on an operational basis in B.C., and moves sediment and erosion control operations from being post-damage "band-aid" treatments into an active cost-effective mitigation program.
