Shows what fire can do to runoff water quality, how a high debris load can easily clog culverts and how one flood event can cause a stream to change course and cut a new channel. No doubt the peak flow is also lot higher than it would've been from a vegetated catchment.
With fire seasons becoming longer, more intense and expanding into areas seldom previously burnt, the engineering challenges for designers and asset owners are many. https://youtu.be/ZDwFFuRR4KE
