Melting snow, heavy spring rains and flooding can wash out unpaved driveways, farm lanes, and access roads.
To help solve this problem, the Westmoreland Conservation District will host a workshop called After the Storms: How to Repair and Maintain Gravel Driveways and Unpaved Lanes.
The workshop will show participants how to make cost-effective repairs and prevent repeat problems in the future, saving both time and money.
The workshop will be held on March 3, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the South Huntington Township Municipal Building, 75 Supervisors Drive, in West Newton.
“Quick fixes might seem to work, but actually will cost more money in the long run. This workshop will show how managing water before it gets to the lane or driveway will reduce maintenance, improve driving surface, save money, and help the environment,” said Chelsea Walker, watershed technician for the Westmoreland Conservation District and facilitator of the workshop.
