The need for additional erosion control on public and private roads in Santa Cruz County noted in numerous TMDL reports and watershed assessments continues to grow and the RCD is expanding its efforts to meet these needs. The grant from the SWRCB received in December of 2006 allows the RCD to continue to provide technical assistance, to conduct new road assessments, and to design and construct an additional 9-12 rural road erosion control projects. This grant will also help implement the Pajaro River sediment TMDL by expanding the program into the Lower Pajaro River Watershed. It will also help develop projects in partnership with State Parks who recently, in cooperation with the California Geological Survey, completed assessments for the entire state park road network in Santa Cruz County. An exciting component of the new grant is the addition of a Home Drainage Program that will allow the RCD to work with residential home owners to improve drainage on their properties.
