Abstract:

Sediment erosionrunoff can be a major impairment to streams on Fort Benning and other military installations due to both on-site and off-site land uses. On Fort Benning, military training, forested areas subjected to prescribed burning, unpaved roads and construction are primary sources of sediment loads. Urban encroachment or the expansion of urban centers upstream of the Installation also can contribute to sediments loads measured in Fort Bennings streams. Military installations are concerned about sustainability of their training lands, maintaining compliance i.e., related to Clean Water Act, Energy Independence and Security Act Section 438, and Endangered Species Act and justification of budgets associated with best management practices designed to reduce sediment loads and its associated impacts.
