A paired watershed experiment of silvicultural best management practices first initiated in 1973 and harvested in 1974-75 was harvested for a second time in 2004. During the current harvest, BMPs were updated to reflect current guidelines. Stream water yield and physical and chemical attributes were monitored for one year pre-harvest and one year post-harvest. Here we report results for dissolved organic carbon DOC and total dissolved nitrogen TDN concentrations and fluxes. In the treatment watershed, no response to harvest in the discharge-concentration relationship was observed. Based on double mass curves, however, the yield of DOC and TDN increased in the treatment watershed as a result of increased stream water fluxes, although the increased mass of DOC or TDN loss was relatively small.
