WHO would benefit from this training session?

Maintaining ditches alongside gravel roads is an ongoing and expensive task for counties, townships and others. When done improperly, the results can not only lead to damaged infrastructure and extensive additional costs, but significant impacts to streams, wetland, and lakes. To encourage proper maintenance, a team of professionals has worked with city, county, and state agencies to develop the Field Guide for Gravel Roadside Ditch Maintenance in Northeastern Minnesota, which will be reviewed at this workshop. The FREE guide will be released this spring, after workshop participants' comments and recommendations have been addressed. The Guide will be used by road crews, contractors and others.
