DGLVR Engineer’s Stream Crossing Replacement Training

Monday, March 27 – Tuesday, March 28

The replacement of stream crossings has been a growing component of many DGLVR projects since Program funding increased in 2014. The Program focuses funding on structures that are creating environmental impacts because they are undersized for the stream channel. Undersized structures create a variety of environmental and maintenance problems such as gravel deposition, excessive erosion, flooding, and creating a barrier to the movement of fish and other aquatic organisms. In May of 2022, the SCC approved a new policy, standard, and technical manual related to stream crossing replacements that took effect 7/1/22.

The York County Conservation District will host a training geared toward engineers who work with the Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Road Program, and who design stream crossings.

Lunch will be provided on March 28th
