Rural Road Improvements
Unpaved rural roads are thought to be a major contributor of sediment to local waterways, which in turn can degrade aquatic habitat. It is possible to minimize a roads influence in a watershed through implementation of certain storm-proofing techniques such as installing rolling dips, out-sloping road lengths, and managing stream crossings. RCD works with land managers to assess the condition of rural roads, develop road-log action plans, and implement improvements with the goal of improving road drivability, minimizing road maintenance, and protecting Napa County’s clean waterways. RCD also offers construction oversight and construction training through our LandSmart™ Program.
