Logging could threaten Upper Clearwater’s water and road access

There is only one access into the valley, a fact made painfully clear when we lost the road at First Canyon, Spahats, and Moul Creeks

Editor, The Times:

As a long-time resident of the Upper Clearwater (my parents homesteaded here in 1938), I am increasingly worried about potential threats to both our road and our water supply.

There is only one access into the valley, a fact made painfully clear when we lost the road at First Canyon, Spahats, and Moul Creeks –  and almost (not once but twice) at Second Canyon Creek.

Many of us obtain our household, livestock, and irrigation water from the many small streams that flow from the western slope of Trophy Mountain.

What impact will logging on these slopes have on our present safe water supply? And on our only road into the valley?
