This workshop covers road-stream crossing projects, from site assessment to permitting and installation. The emphasis will be on maintaining and restoring the habitat and economic values of the stream. This workshop will be helpful for preparing Water Bond grant applications.
Learn how to:
- Maintain fish and wildlife habitat while protecting roads and public safety.
- Prepare for the large and frequent storm events that have been washing out roads around the state and the northeast.
