Mica Creek Experimental Watershed


The Mica Creek Experimental Watershed is a paired and nested catchment study basin, privately operated by Potlatch Corporation.  It is located in northern Idaho approximately 42 miles southeast of Coeur d'Alene Idaho.  The experimental watershed encompasses the Mica Creek and the West Fork of Mica Creek (2700 hectares) catchments, which are tributaries to the St. Joe River. In 1990, researchers at the University of Idaho, in cooperation with managers at the Potlatch Corporation, began work to evaluate the cumulative effects of modern timber harvest practices.  Current studies focus on harvest impacts on water quality and quantity.
