Abstract
This report presents the importance of best management practices for mitigating erosion from resource roads and preventing sediment from entering a watercourse. Key to achieving these goals is the understanding of erosion from the road surface and the level of connectivity from the delivery point of the sediment-laden water onto the forest floor and the watercourse. This report provides a list of best management practices that is specific to resource roads.

Abstract
This handbook is a compilation of erosion and sediment control practices aimed at aiding the forest industry, and includes background information to support such practices. These practices are often termed Best Management Practices (BMPs). The handbook will offer guidance for erosion prevention and sediment containment along forest roads where the driving forces are rain and moving water; erosion from wind and mass wasting processes will not be covered.

Abstract
This guide is intended as a reference for use during the eld data collection phase of the provincial process in assessing sh passage at culverted sites.1 It is an important part of the provincial assessment process which uses a holistic watershed approach. The eld data can be used as part of the development of a sh passage restoration plan2 or as part of regular road maintenance inspections.

Abstract
The first recommendation for forest access road construction is to avoid wetlands as much as possible. This protects the natural state of the wetlands and avoids the challenges of low bearing soils during road construction. However, in many areas, wetlands are difficult to bypass due to their size. If an access road must cross them, its alignment must minimize the effects on hydrologic processes and ecological functions, while ensuring that the economic, operational and safety requirements of the road are met. Careful planning and best water management practices will achieve these goals. Because access road construction in wetlands is so complex, the information below is only a snapshot of what to consider.
Abstract
La première recommandation concernant la construction de routes d’accès en milieu forestier consiste à éviter le plus possible les milieux humides. Cela protège l’état naturel de ces derniers et évite les défis liés aux sols à faible portance lors de la construction de routes. Cependant, dans de nombreux endroits, il est difficile de contourner les milieux humides en raison de leur étendue. Si une route d’accès doit les traverser, son tracé doit minimiser les effets sur les processus hydrologiques et les fonctions écologiques, tout en assurant le respect des exigences économiques, opérationnelles et sécuritaires de la route. Une planification attentive et des pratiques de gestion de l’eau exemplaires permettront d’atteindre ces objectifs. La construction de routes d’accès en milieux humides étant très complexe, les informations ci-dessous ne représentent qu’un aperçu de ce qu’il faut considérer.
