Navarro Vineyards Road Improvement Demonstration Project
The Fish Friendly Farming program is working with Navarro Vineyards to implement a demonstration of soil erosion control on a vineyard road. Currently, the road has an inboard ditch and culverts. This conventional system generates fine sediment that then runs off into creeks. The project involves out-sloping the road and installing rolling dips. This design disperses runoff off the road as sheetflow to avoid concentration into erosive flow. Completed in 2008, this project serves as a demonstration to landowners for future road improvement projects. Funding for this project was provided by the California State Water Resources Control Board.
The Fish Friendly Farming program worked with
Navarro Vineyards and Pacific Watershed Associates to outslope this
road and reduce fine sediment generation and delivery.
