ESM DIRT & GRAVEL ROADS ONE-DAY COURSE

ESM DIRT & GRAVEL ROADS ONE-DAY COURSE

The McKean County Conservation District will hold its Fourth Annual specialized course on Environmentally Sensitive Maintenance of Dirt and Gravel Roads on March 6, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 4:00 PM at the Veteran’s Memorial in Port Allegany, PA.

This unique, one-day event is open to the general public and everyone who maintains unpaved roads, including: municipalities, oil and gas operators, timber operators, private and commercial landowners, and employees of state and national forests are invited and encouraged to attend. Sponsors for the event include the State Conservation Commission and the Penn State Center for Dirt & Gravel Road Studies.

With an emphasis on promoting practices which reduce maintenance costs while reducing sediment pollution, the experienced staff of the Pennsylvania Dirt and Gravel Road Maintenance Program will openly share their valuable insights and proven methods. A small sampling of what the course covers includes; the affect of natural systems on roads, the influences of right-of-ways, the management of roadside vegetation, ditch outlets, road and stream interfaces, and effective use of driving surface aggregates. 

The course qualifies PA SFI continuing education credits and professional development hours for forestry and engineering.

A nominal fee of $15 per participant covers course materials, morning snacks, refreshments and lunch. In addition, each participant attending the entire program will receive a certificate of attendance. 

 For more information or registration, please contact the McKean County Conservation District at 814-887-4001 or email at sdthompson@mckeancountypa.org by February 27, 2013.
