Research Highlights

Quantifying urban forest effects on stormwater runoff (2017)
SRS-2017-139 Forests provide the majority of potable water to the public. Urbanization of water-providing forests impacts water quality, as traditional urban development practices eliminate tree canopy cover, remove existing ground cover and pervious soils, and compact the remaining soil to better accommodate impervious surfaces. Forest Service scientists compiled the best available research to help civil engineers use trees to mitigate stormwater runoff.
