The purpose of this report is to summarize existing monitoring data on the effects the 1987 wild fire and subsequent salvage operations had on water quality and fish habitat. This report will also look at the original monitoring objectives to see if they have been achieved, how well do actual conditions correlate with predictions of effects in the EIS and recommend additional monitoring and data analysis.

Discusses the water quality and anadromous fish habitat effects of salvage logging and road construction and concludes that the Silver and Indigo Creek watersheds and steelhead trout and Chinook salmon habitat are recovering well.
