MANAGING DRAINAGE & EROSION ON PRIVATE PROPERTY & ROADS AFTER FIRE
Updated: Sep 25, 2020
Part three of the series "Protecting Your Land After Wildfire."
The recent fires burning in the Santa Cruz Mountains have displaced thousands of Santa Cruz Mountain residents and damaged or destroyed homes, roads, farms, and forests. As we approach the coming winter, the fire-scarred landscape will exacerbate erosion potential on hillslopes and private road drainage systems in the burn areas. Understanding appropriate techniques to manage runoff and debris will help to protect your property and our creeks and rivers. Presenter Matt Weld is a register civil engineer, hydrologist and certified erosion control specialist who grew up in the San Lorenzo Valley.
