Description In the late 1990s and early 2000s, Washington State's forest practice regulations went through a major overhaul, in large part responding to concerns about potential and actual damage to native fish populations and water quality from logging and forest roads. The Compliance Monitoring Program (CMP), created to evaluate how closely state forestry regulations are followed, has been up and running since 2006. It strives to provide a sound evaluation of whether forestry activities, conducted on state and private lands, meet both the forest practice rules and the requirements of forest practices applications (FPAs). Over the long term, when enough FPAs have been surveyed to provide reliable estimates, the CMP hopes to accurately describe compliance both statewide and for each DNR region.
The mission of the Department of Ecology is to protect, preserve, and enhance Washington’s environment. To help us meet that goal, please consider the environment before you print or request a copy.
