Emerging Issues in Mountain Watershed Management (Hans Schreier)

Mountain watersheds are very sensitive to changes in land use and increased climatic variability and recent extreme events show that we are experiencing significant changes in streamflow regimes, sediment transport and water quality. The session will show how land use activities and climate are affecting the availability of water, flooding problems, summer droughts and its effect on environmental services. Examples will be provided to show how Increased climatic variability combined with changes in forest cover, recreational activities, and agriculture are impacting watersheds and how innovative land use management practices can minimizing some of these impacts. It will also show what role community groups can play to protect streams and reduce the different risks.
