Annual Road Ditch Assessments
Watershed road ditches are monitored throughout the year for evidence of severe erosion.
Program staff have identified over 10 miles of unstable area throughout the watershed since 2014. We work closely with the Soil and Water Conservation District and municipal and county highway departments to pursue funding for ditch stabilization practices to reduce erosion.
2015 Road Ditch Assessment
Overall, 18 ditch sites were inventoried in 2015, from which over 4 linear miles of unstable ditch lengths were identified.
2014 Road Ditch Assessment
Overall, 20 ditch sites were inventoried in 2014, from which approximately 5 linear miles of unstable ditch lengths were identified.
