U.S. Forest Service assesses watersheds for first time

OK, but one very big question this poorly researched media account doesn’t answer is why did it take the public land-management agency this long to get around to it? In any case, Americans have got to remember that few acres in the East, especially the Northeast, were looked at in the study because they are not PUBLIC LAND acres and, thus, are not part of national forests. I can think of a bunch of watersheds in my previous home state of Pennsylvania that are in very sorry state — both from development and the past excesses of coal mining.
