Road surfaces can be one of the most predominant sources of sediment from a forest operation. These areas of bare ground are exposed to the pounding of vehicular traffic and the erosive forces of weather. To prevent road surface erosion that could lead to sediment being transported to local water resources it is critical that road surfaces be well drained using various BMPs designed to divert water off the road. Can you list three water control structures that can be used to divert water off roadways and skid trails to prevent or at least minimize erosion?
