Dirt and Gravel Roads
The PA State Conservation Commission’s Dirt and Gravel Road Pollution Prevention Program provides training and funding to local townships to help prevent stream pollution from excess road sediment. The Susquehanna County Conservation District works with local townships in the county to develop a work plan to correct pollution problems on unpaved roads, which also results in a drastic decrease in road maintenance once projects are completed.

USDA Resource Conservation and Development Council
Over 30 years ago, Congress established a unique program within the U.S. Department of Agriculture that empowered rural people to help themselves. The USDA focus was to assist local people by providing tools and technical support to stabilize and grow their own communities while protecting and developing natural resources. In return, local "Councils" provide local direction and planning and coordinate implementation of specific projects within their boundaries. The focus on local direction and control has made RC&D one of the most successful rural development programs of the Federal Government. Project focus provides for the sustainability of local economies and resources.
