The watershed condition assessment process involves classification of all sub-watersheds on National Forest lands into one of three watershed condition classes based on assigning a numerical score to each of the indicator categories: Class 1—Functioning Properly; Class 2—Functioning at Risk; Class 3—Functionally Impaired (Impaired Function).File Size: KB.

Cooper Creek, Coosa Creek, and Youngcane Creek are important streams located in Union County, Georgia. These watersheds combined cont acres of National Forest Lands acres of land in total, and they contain 11 management prescriptions, including Designated Wilderness, Appalachian Trail Corridor, and Outstandingly Remarkable Streams. The Watershed Condition Framework (WCF) is a comprehensive effort to proactively implement integrated restoration on priority watersheds on national forests and grasslands (U.S. Dept. of Agriculture ).. The primary emphasis of the classification is on aquatic and terrestrial processes and conditions that Forest Service management activities can influence.

This section contains tables with detailed results of the assessment of risk of impaired watershed condition by NFS unit for watersheds with NFS land in the conterminous U.S. Tables B1 and B2 are based on the full set of indicators, with Table B1 reporting on whole watersheds and Table B2 reporting on NFS parts of watersheds.

rating watershed condition nationwide. “Watershed” condition is not a precise term. For some it refers to the general condition of the land within the watershed, whereas for others it refers only to those aspects of the watershed affecting the quality, quantity, or timing of the water flowing in or from the watershed.

Published: () Watershed protection a statewide approach. Published: (). USFS developed the Watershed Condition Framework (WCF) to provide a consistent approach for classifying the condition of watersheds on the Nation’s forests and grasslands.
USFS established three watershed condition classes (functioning properly, functioning at risk, and impaired function) to assess, classify, prioritize, and monitor progress toward maintaining or improving watershed condition. california’s key source watershed infrastructure 1 InCalifornia enacted ABwhich defined source watersheds — the forests, meadows, and streams that supply water to its reservoirs — as an integral part of the state’s water system infrastructure.
A Forest Service survey of watershed conditions estimates that approximately 48 percent of watersheds on National Forests are classified as “functioning at risk" or “impaired function." U.S.

Greeley, USDA - Forest Service, Washington, D.C. Presentation to SME, March ABSTRACT. The movement to reclaim abandoned mine sites has gained momentum as federal, state, and private organizations have increased their commitment and resources to tackle mutual, and often controversial, problems of health and safety.

One long-term solution to increasing water availability regardless of the level of precipitation is upland forest thinning and removal of Western juniper. Fire suppression has occurred west-wide which has allowed for forest and rangeland conditions to further reduce water yield with increased water quality problems.
