Even though ​​​Bushfires degrade water quality and alter the dynamics of stream ecosystems in many complex ways. Water quality is also affected if there is heavy rain soon after fire, as loss of vegetation and altered soil structure can make fire-affected soils more erodible. Runoff can carry sediments and pollutants that affect aquatic environments, drinking water quality and agricultural industries.
