2. Streamside Management Zones (SMZs) - continued

To limit the disturbances in SMZs, consider the following practices:

  • roads should not be constructed in SMZs except at designated stream or wetland crossings
  • operate vehicles only on roads
  • do not side cast road construction material into SMZs
  • do not handle, store, apply, or dispose of hazardous chemicals, fertilizers, or pesticides in SMZs
  • do not deposit waste timber or slash in SMZs
