In the Mill Creek - Council Mountain Landscape Restoration Project, the plan is to obliterate a certain number of miles of road. I wanted to leam more about this, so I sat down with Melanie Vining, Hydrologist for the West 'Zone of the Payette National Forest, and asked her a few questions. Hydrology I01 To understand the issue, Melanie said, you have to understand what happens to the rain and snow that falls on the forest. Picture what happens when it rains hard, or when spring snow melts. Some of the water will absorb into the ground (called infiltration) or into the top layer of vegetation or duff in a forest. Duff, grass or other vegetation and litter on the ground will slow down any water that doesn't absorb, so the runoff (also called overland flow) generally doesn't cause significant soil erosion. Base flow is the amount of water in a river at its lowest point, which usually happens in mid to late summer in the West--a flow that is not fed by surface runoff but by water that is stored in the ground, accumulated from snowmelt and rain higher in the watershed system. Smaller streams that dry up for most of the summer don't have a base flow because they are not connected to the water table. Obviously this is critical to fish survival. It also affects irrigators, boaters, and other water users all the way to the ocean. Roads can contribute to prematurely releasing a certain amount of ground water onto the surface, although to what degree depends on the specific watershed. Again, it's a cumulative effect of a small amount multiplied over a large area. Recent studies have shown that base flows in some areas of the West are being affected by a trend for slightly warmer winters, causing This process gets out of whack when the water precipitation to fall as rain instead of snow at comes to a road or an area where there is little or no organic material on the ground. Water that falls directly on a compacted road surface is not absorbed into the ground at the same rate as it is on adjacent ground that is not compacted. The water that has absorbed into the ground above the road sometimes comes out of the cut bank and either runs down into the ditch between the bank and the road, or if the road is engineered without a ditch and slopes outward, the water may puddle on the surface or go on across the road. Overland flow also comes to the ditch or the compacted roadbed. For obvious reasons, Forest roads are not level, except in occasional places; they climb/descend a hillside. When water reaches such a road, it accelerates because it no longer has anything to slow it down. As the water picks up speed, it picks up sediment. The added sediment acts as an abrasive and increases the scouring influence, gathering even more sediment and causing more erosion. Melanie gave an example of a not-uncommon occurrence. Culverts often get plugged. There were "twin" culverts (two aone crossing) on Mill Creek Road where the road crosses Mill Creek. In June 2010, high flows partially plugged these culverts, and the water that accumulated behind the blockage had enough power to take out the road where it broke over the top. That took a lot of sediment (mostly road fill) into Mill Creek, besides making for a big road repair job. Culverts need to be maintained to keep them functioning, and can plug on even the smallest streams, damaging the stream channel and/or the road. Water Temperature Another factor that can make roads a negative effect on streams is water temperature. The water that absorbs into a natural hillside, and makes it all the way to a stream without coming out of the ground at a road cut bank, is cold when it enters the stream. If that water is interrupted by a road and runs on the surface, it often warms significantly. Water temperature is an important factor in fish habitat. When the water in a stream warms to a certain point, it starts having a harmful effect. One road may not have enough effect by itself, but the cumulative effect of another road, and another, and so on, eventually does. If a road runs right next to a stream, occupying space that otherwise would contain trees and shrubs, it higher than past "normal" elevations. In the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed located in the Owyhee Mountains, a recent paper cited a significant shift in the timing and magnitude of late summer base flows (see pubs/crossref/2010/2008WR007525.shtml). The Acreage Argument The argument has been made that the prescribed burns that are done by the Forest Service cover many times more acreage than the roads do, and therefore cause many times more erosion than the roads. But comparing acreage to acreage is a red herring. First, as you can see by the description of how water acts when it hits a road, it's not just the amount of acres that a road covers that causes the problem. A road runs across a hill, gathering the surface water (and some of the ground water) that comes down the hillsides above it. The road can concentrate, channel and accelerate that water into a more powerful force than the natural hillside does. Secondly, controlled bums are planned very carefully to avoid severe effects to the soil that would accelerate erosion. Admittedly, sometimes they bum hotter in isolated areas, but every precaution is taken to prevent that. Prescribed burns are only done when the forest is moist enough to create a lower-intensity fire that mostly burns just some of the duff layer and burns "ladder fuels"--the brush and small trees that deliver fire up into the bigger trees in a more intense fire. The idea is to only bum the top layer of ground cover, not bum everything right down to the soil. That leaves material to prevent rapid runoff and erosion. Part of planning a controlled burn is the creation of an interdisciplinary team plan that various resource specialists sign off on, saying the way the bum is done will not harm their area of responsibility: wildlife, timber, fish, soils, recreation, hydrology, etc. Stream protection is high on the list of priorities when making such a plan. A prescribed bum incorporates measures to protect vegetation within 240 feet of a perennial stream. That area is called a Riparian Conservation Area {RCA). This leaves a buffer of natural ground cover to absorb or slow any runoff, and filter sediment. Part II of this article will be in next week's paper. up EMT's and firemen from Council and New Meadows to take the training. State train- ing requirements have increased this past year, and most of the local force will need to update their classes. Sheriff Green also reported that the State of Idaho has begun adding prisoners to the county jail. Commissioner Brown requested that the Sheriff negotiate with the State of Idaho to come up with a minimum number of prisoners from the state so the county can budget their funds better.

Big Game Season Open Houses Slated From Idaho Fish & Game Though months away, the 2012 big game hunting season is the subject of a series of open houses hosted by Idaho Fish and Game. Plan now to attend and provide input that will help shape this fall's hunting seasons in Idaho's Southwest region. To leam more about the meetings, contact Fish and Game's McCall office at 634-8137, By February 23, all of the 2012 big game hunt proposals will be available for review and comment on the Fish and Game website at: http:// Comment letters and phone calls to Fish and Game regional offices are also welcome. The comment period ends March 9. A complete list of statewide deer, elk, pronghom, black bear and mountain lion hunt proposals will also be available at each upcoming open house, with Fish and Game staff available to discuss all proposals. Plan to attend the open house in your area. McCall - Wednesday, February 29 4-7pm at the Fish and Game Office, 555 Deinhard Lane Weiser - Monday, March 5 4-7pm at Weiser High School Library, 690 Indianhead Road Some proposal highlights include: Elk - One proposal calls for a reduction in antlerless hunting opportunity in Hunt Unit 23. Black Bears - A proposal calls for increasing spring black bear season by one week in Hunt Units 23, 24 and 25. Wolves -, A proposal calls for wolf trapping to be added to Hunt Units 19A and 25.
