  • Permanent or temporary crossing
  • Truck or skidder crossing
  • Wet or dry season
  • Stream bank layout / stability
  • Size of the watershed / stream width / depth
  • Impacts to water quality

Taking these considerations into account  before installing a crossing can help you stay productive while minimizing the impact to water quality.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row fullwidth=”false” attached=”false” padding=”0″ visibility=”” animation=””][vc_column border_color=”” visibility=”” width=”1/1″][vc_separator color=”grey” align=”align_center”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
