Lake County Culvert Inventory
This project will result in a Lake County-wide culvert inventory.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
When completed, this Lake County-wide culvert inventory project will have multiple direct benefits to water quality protection, natural resource planning, and municipal asset protection. This inventory will be used to provide local and state authorities accurate information on the condition of road crossings, better calibrate hydrological modeling tools crucial to the inter-agency Watershed Restoration and Protection Strategies (WRAPS) process, and assess how road crossings in Lake County are affecting the water and sediment transport capacity of our waterways. It will prioritize where our technical and funding resources can best be used to address stream crossing infrastructure issues and associated stream restoration projects.
