Municipal Road Erosion Inventory Methodology Development

Statewide, VT- 2014-2015
Contact: Michaela Stickney, Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation; P: (802) 490-6117

WCA was hired by the VT DEC to develop a road erosion inventory methodology. This methodology served to identify sections of roads in need of erosion and sediment control, rank the degree of need, and provide a cost estimate for remediation. The methodology needed to be intuitive, replicable, and easy to distribute to municipal transportation managers, regardless of level of technological skill, or equipment. During development of the methodology, an inventory template was created in both paper format and as a digital mobile app to assess each road segment. A manual was written to guide users through each step of the assessment.
