NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This program works with local landowners and road associations to implement the Best Management Practices on rural roads and private and public lands in the San Lorenzo River Watershed. The BMP's focus on improving water quality by decreasing erosion and reducing sediment loads. These projects will result in a decrease in sediments and other road induced pollutants in waterways. The rural road BMPS to be implemented include access road improvement (outsloping, critical dips, and rolling dips), structures for water control (inlet/oulet protection and ditch relief culverts), and installation of trash tracks, repairs and maintenance to existing culverts, and critical area planting/vegetative erosion control. The stormwater BMP's to be implemented include rain catchment, rain gardens, swales and infiltration techniques.
