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
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) and the B.C. Ministry of Forests’ Resource Tenures and Engineering Branch surveyed users of closed-bottom corrugated-steel embedded culverts to find installations that generally conform to the Fish-stream Crossing Guidebook that was released in 2002 under the Forest Practices Code of British Columbia Act. This report describes seven sites that were visited, and includes the installation procedures and costs for each of the sites.

Abstract
The Forest Engineering Research Institute of Canada (FERIC) surveyed users of closed-bottom corrugated-steel embedded culverts within British Columbia and visited selected sites. This report presents information about the installations visited, including the installation procedures and costs. This report also provides suggestions for the implementation of future embedded culverts.

Abstract
Forest managers in western Canada are now treating old forest roads and harvested sites to mitigate environmental concerns. This Compendium has been developed to assist practitioners in western Canada in selecting and implementing restoration measures appropriate to their needs and conditions. Watershed restoration activities, techniques and research trials in western North America are described and contacts for further information are given. Additions to the Compendium will be made on an ongoing basis.

Abstract
Les visites réalisées dans le cadre de cette étude ont permis d’établir une structure afin de quantifier le coût d’installation des ouvrages traditionnels (ponceaux) et amovibles (ouvrages dont les appuis sont situés en dehors de la limite supérieure de la berge) en lien avec le RADF. Dans ce contexte, il a été possible de proposer une feuille de calcul permettant d’estimer le coût des ouvrages traditionnels et amovibles. Toutefois, le nombre limité d’observations ne permet pas de tirer de conclusions définitives sur les coûts de ces ouvrages dans plusieurs conditions d’installation.

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.
