DAUPHIN, PA (December
8, 2016) – The Dauphin County Conservation District will hold a Dirt, Gravel
and Low Volume Road Maintenance Program Quality Assurance Board Meeting at 9
a.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 13, 2016 at the county’s Conservation District office,
1451 Peters Mountain Road, in Dauphin. This meeting is open to the public.
The program provides contract funding to local
road-owning entities to eliminate stream pollution caused by runoff and
sediment from unpaved or low-volume roads. Utilizing standards and policies established
by the Dauphin County Dirt, Gravel and Low Volume Road Maintenance Program
Quality Assurance Board, the Conservation District works with municipalities to
acquire this funding and develop plans for projects using Environmentally
Sensitive Maintenance Practices. The
goal of the program is to create a more environmentally and economically
sustainable low-volume road network through education, outreach and funding.

feedback, contact the Dauphin County Conservation District at 717-921-8100 or
