Improving Forest Practices to Protect Water

BCWF’s Conservation Webinar Series:

On February 22nd, 2022, 7:00pm Tracy Andrews and Kevin Kriese from the Forest Practices Board will presented on Improving Forest Practices to Protect Water.

The webinar covered the following areas:

  • Forest licensees in BC generally follow legal requirements to protect water, and some licensees do more; but impacts to fish habitat, drinking water, roads, and infrastructure still occur.
  • Based on fifteen years of field experience, the Forest Practices Board has identified four opportunities to improve forestry legislation and policy to protect water:
    1. Better public involvement through planning;
    2. Managing for cumulative effects and climate change;
    3. Reduce sediment from roads; and
    4. Watershed restoration.
