The floods and torrential rains recently damaged and washed away the main access road

Posted by francine chanover over 9 years ago

As it is the only road access to the top of the hill I have devised a plan

I will need and excavator and someone who can use one.. I feel thaqt because the rain comes down the hill too quickly it needs to be detered, Thus it will need to have small dams and big ones made to capture the water, as well as pipes across the road as well as swales from the top of the hill all the way down..

 

anyone else have any ideas>

It's a bit hard to work out any sort of plan without looking at the ground in question.

Main thing is to look at spreading the moving water over the widest possible area - it is when it concentrates it's force that it does damage. make sure any dam/swale systems you set up have a very wide spillway and that the water is not allowed to concentrate before it is captured by the next dam/swale.

Work out your levels first, and where the swales and dams will go. Then plan the road to take advantage of them.

You'll probably want to get cracking on it, as the forecasters are predicting a wet summer (again!)
