Because of the importance of stream crossings
to forest operations and the potential for sediment delivery, research
investigating incremental enhancements to stream crossing BMPs is of interest
to the forestry community. With support from NCASI, scientists at Virginia Tech
recently initiated a 3-1/2-year study of potential sediment control and costs
of enhanced BMPs at operational forest stream crossings.
To better align NCASI with the needs of its members and fiscal
realities, NCASI has undertaken a modest restructuring. Overall, this
