Effects of Wildfires on Watersheds

    In 2014, the eastern slopes of the Cascade Mountains in Washington State were ravaged by one of the worse fire seasons in recorded history, including the largest wildfire on record. The 2015 Watershed Management Conference is being held in Wenatchee, Washington, next August and provides a very unique opportunity to discuss and actually see how the watersheds have responded to these impacts. Plan now to attend and if you have information to share consider submitting an abstract through the EWRI site. Abstract Submission Deadline October 1.
