Georgia Better Backroads Program
County commissioners from throughout the state have long been concerned with the increased costs for maintaining unpaved roads as well as the potential for water quality related fines caused by sediment leaving these dirt roads. In response, the Two Rivers RC&D Council secured a Georgia Environmental Protection Division grant to address these needs. This statewide partnership includes NRCS Field Offices, Georgia RC&D Councils, Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Districts, Georgia DOT, Georgia ACCG, and the Georgia Chapter of the American Public Works Association.
The project will consist of three components:
1) Statewide Demonstration Sites
2) Statewide Training Seminars
3) Publication of an Unpaved Road Maintenance Manual
