Protect Salmon from Logging Road Sediment
Sediment and other pollutants discharged from logging roads pose a problem because they threaten the health of endangered species and delicate ecosystems while also threatening the quality of clean public drinking water supplies. Sediment associated with logging is a well-documented threat to water quality. On logging roads actively used for timber hauling, logging trucks grind up the gravel road surface, turning it into fine sediment that is often then transported by stormwater to rivers and streams.

Please join us in sending an e-mail to the EPA asking them to require permits to regulate these pollutants as the Clean Water Act requires.
