Partner Event: Gravel Road Maintenance Practices Workshop
July 20, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 12:30 pm$95 – $98
Save money and protect natural resources with a well-maintained gravel road
Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District and Maine DEP are co-sponsoring a four and a half-hour classroom and field event hosted by Coastal Rivers Conservation Trust.
The proper maintenance of gravel roads in Maine is important for providing residents safe access to their properties and minimizing costly capital repairs to these roads over time, but it is also an important part of protecting our natural resources from degradation. In this training, participants will learn how proper maintenance protects water quality, review gravel road materials, evaluate a gravel road for maintenance needs, create a road maintenance plan, discuss gravel road Best Management Practices, and will include a site-walk of a local gravel road to provide a real-life scenario for discussion of potential improvements and practices. This training is intended to provide a resource for gravel road owners, town officials, contractors, and watershed organizations to better understand methods and practices for evaluating and maintaining gravel roads using the Maine DEP Camp Road Maintenance Manual.
This class qualifies for 4 Continuing Education Hours (CEH) for individuals Certified in Erosion Control Practices by Maine DEP. Each CEH afford Certified individuals one year of recertification. Presented by John Maclaine Non-Point Source Training Center Coordinator and Dave Roque, Retired Soil Scientist ME DACF.
