The Broad-Based Dip on Piedmont Woods Roads
Poor design and location of logging roads is a major cause of erosion of the roads and subsequent sedimentation of streams. The broad-based dip is a low-cost, surface drain designed to mimimize crosion while the road is being used, as well as during the period between harvests. The dip is a 20-foot stretch of reverse grade built into the basic grade, slightly outsloped at the bottom.
