Private Forests, Housing Growth, and Americańˇ╗s Water Supply: A Report from the Forests on the Edge and Forests to Faucets Projects
Miranda H. Mockin (au)
Americańˇ╗s private forests provide a vast array of public goods and services, including abundant, clean surface water. Forest loss and development can affect water quality and quantity when forests are removed and impervious surfaces, such as paved roads, spread across the landscape. This report ranks watersheds across the coterminous U.S. according to the contributions of private forest land to surface drinking water and by threats to surface water from increased housing density. Nationwide, more than 55 million acres of rural private forest land are projected to experience a substantial increase in housing density by 2030. Planners, communities, and private landowners can use a range of strategies to maintain freshwater ecosystems, including designing housing and roads to minimize impacts on water quality, managing home sites to protect water resources, and using payment schemes and management partnerships to invest in forest stewardship on public and private lands. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
