Stream Restoration

  • Land Use & Water Quality at the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory

    When the National Forest System was established in 1905, one of its first mandates was to restore the watershed function of forests. Today an estimated 80 percent of U.S. freshwater resources originate in forests, with much of the nation's drinking water coming from the estimated 192 million acres of our national forests, which actually make up only 30 percent of U.S. forested land. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, more than 60 million people in 3,400 communities rely directly on national forests for their drinking water.
