Silted Stream from Logging-Induced Landslide

Heavy rains during the winter of 1996 triggered hundreds of landslides across the Pacific Northwest. Aerial reconnaissance surveys of the Oregon coast linked the majority of these slides (70%) to recent clearcuts or road construction on forest lands. Proponents of the roadless area conservation rule (a rule which would prevent the construction of new roads on almost 60 million acres of unroaded national forest lands) note that taxpayers are often not only subsidizing the construction of new logging roads in national forests but are also paying for the resulting damage to watersheds and wildlife from logging-induced landslides and erosion. The comment period for the roadless area rule ends on Monday, September 10. Photograph: This slide blocking Bear Creek originated from an abandoned logging platform in a clearcut on Coos County BLM land.
