Request for Quotes: Federal Clean Water Act Section 604 (b) Water Quality Management Planning 2013
Quotes due October 4, 2013. The Surface Water Quality Bureau (Bureau or SWQB) of the New Mexico Environment Department (NMED) requests quotes from regional public comprehensive planning organizations to conduct water quality management planning as defined under sections 205(j) and 303(e) of the Clean Water Act (CWA). These funds are made available through an RFQ as, given the duration and amount of an award, this is the appropriate approach through the State of New Mexico Procurement Code. In response to this RFQ NMED seeks detailed quotes (i.e. proposals) to conduct water quality management planning. While all quotes focused on water quality management planning are welcomed, those which will fund activities that clearly address the State’s water quality goals to preserve, protect and improve the water quality in New Mexico are likely to be rated highest. In this respect NMED encourages quotes focused on Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), Use Attainability Analysis (UAA) or other water quality management planning activities that will directly address identified water quality impairments but do not overlap with development of watershed based plans that are eligible for funding through NMED’s 319(h) program.

The State and Future of U.S. Forestry and the Forest Industry
Report and Recommendations from the May 29-30, 2013 Workshop on the State and Future of U.S. Forestry and the Forest Industry. Prepared by M. Goergen, J. Harding, C. Owen, M. Rey and L. Scarlett. "Both the forest products industry, and accordingly, the forestry sector in the United States... have experienced extreme volatility, unprecedented challenges, and substantial change over the past two decades. In many areas, old operating assumptions have been challenged and discarded at an increasingly rapid pace, and practitioners, policy makers, researchers and educators have struggled to keep up. A group of leaders met in Washington, DC to discuss this changing context and its implications for forests and forestry..."

Fire Management Today
vol. 71 No. 2: Fire Management and Response
The Economic Benefits of Protecting Healthy Watersheds
Healthy intact watersheds provide many ecosystem services that are necessary for our social and economic well-being. These services include water filtration and storage, air filtration, carbon storage, nutrient cycling, soil formation, recreation, food and timber. Many of these services have not been monetized and therefore the economic contributions of healthy intact ecosystems are often under-valued when making land use decisions. Ecosystem services provided by healthy watersheds are difficult to replace and most often very expensive to engineer (see chart). An engineered ecosystem service replacement may only provide a fraction of the services provided by highly functioning natural systems.

Socioeconomic Indicators for Forest Restoration Projects
A model for assessing the socioeconomic outcomes of forest restoration projects was developed. Using a form of purposive sampling, eleven experts with backgrounds in the social, economic, and business aspects of forest restoration were identifi ed and agreed to participate in the process. Four iterations of a Delphi process resulted in a practical, robust model capable of evaluating the social and economic eff ects and outcomes of a wide range of forest restoration projects. Among the most highly rated indicators in the model were those related to job creation, community stability, economic impacts, and collaborative participation in restoration processes. Th e relative importance of the indicators was estimated, and specifi c metrics were developed for each indicator in the model. Upon completion of the Delphi process, the model was discussed with forest restoration monitoring practitioners and stakeholders, who off ered their perspectives from practitioners’ points of view. Results may have implications for any forest restoration eff orts with an interest in assessing a project’s social and economic outcomes.

River, Acequia and Shallow Groundwater Interactions
Until recently, surface water and groundwater have been treated separately in most research and management situations. However, research from around the world is beginning to show the important interactions between surface water and shallow groundwater. Along irrigated cropland corridors between irrigation ditches and rivers, these interactions yield potential water quantity and water quality benefits.

Mastication Treatments in Southwestern Forests
Over the past decade, fuel treatments using mechanical mastication have become increasingly common. Mastication provides a means to treat fuels that are otherwise difficult to treat with prescribed fire. However, a number of questions have arisen regarding the effectiveness and impact of the treatments. We spoke with land managers across the Southwest who have implemented mastication treatments and observed their performance and effects. Some of their insights are presented here along with summaries of research conducted on mastication treatments.

Research Perspectives on the Public and Fire Management: A Synthesis of Current Social Science on Eight Essential Questions
Eight Essential Questions: What is the public's understanding of fire's role in the ecosystem? Who are trusted sources of information about fire? What are the public's views of fuels reduction methods, and how do those views vary depending on citizens' location in the wildland-urban interface or elsewhere? What is the publics' understanding of smoke effects on human health, and what shapes the public's tolerance for smoke? What are homeowners' views of their responsibilities for home and property protection and mitigation, e.g., defensible space measures? What role does human health and safety play in the publics' perceptions of fire and fire management? What are the publics' views on the role and importance of costs in wildfire incident response decisions? To the extent that information is available, how do findings differ among ethnic and cultural groups, and across regions of the country? Provided by FireScience.gov and the USDA

EPA Releases Freshwater Biological Traits Database Report
This final report discusses the development of a database of freshwater biological traits. The database combines several existing traits databases into an online format. The database is also augmented with additional traits that are relevant to detecting climate change-related effects, especially traits related to temperature tolerances and flow.
EPA Releases Report: "Implications of Climate Change for State Bioassessment Programs and Approaches to Account for Effects"
This final report uses biological data collected in wadeable rivers and streams, by four states, to examine the components of state and tribal bioassessment and biomonitoring programs that may be vulnerable to climate change. The study investigates the potential to identify biological response signals to climate change within existing bioassessment data sets; analyzes how biological responses can be categorized and interpreted; and assesses how they may influence decision-making processes. The analyses suggest that several biological indicators may be used to detect climate change effects and such indicators can be used by state bioassessment programs to document changes at high-quality reference sites.
