BCRCD Natural Surface Roads Workshop 

The Butte County Resource Conservation District is hosting a virtual Natural Surface Roads Workshop on Thursday, January 21st from 10 AM until Noon. The workshop is for anyone who is responsible for ownership or maintenance of a natural surface road.


Workshop participants will learn about unpaved rural road drainage design and maintenance strategies from Pacific Watershed and Associates (PWA), Engineering Geologist, Colin Hughes. PWA was the first private company in Northern California to specifically focus on road and trail system planning with an emphasis on protecting water quality.  PWA's reports, publications and design criteria for managing roads and trails are incorporated into many assessments and implementation manuals and handbooks.  Under contract with Federal and State agencies, PWA has developed technical guidelines for sound upland and road restoration assessment and implementation techniques that have become the regulatory standards for the protection of water quality and aquatic habitat.


The workshop is free but registration is required.
