Large and frequent fires are not new to the Taiga of Alaska, nor is Alaska unique among northern regions in this respect. Interior Alaska was very dry in the summer of 1966 and thunderstorms were frequent. The fire, on which this report is based, was caused by lightning on July 23, 1966, and burned into Septemeber covering a total of over 1/4 million acres. The objectives of this study were: To develop sufficient understanding of the effects of forest fires on water quality of Alaskan streams so that it may be possilbe to make rational decisions for allocating manpower and funds for controlling specific fires and; to develop an understanding of needs for rehabilitation (revegetation, erosion prevention, etc.) to control immediate and future polluting effects of the fire on the aquatic environment.
