  • Low water crossings are low maintenance, good permanent crossings for loaded trucks under low flow conditions.
  • Fords are ideal for gently sloping stream banks.

DISADVANTAGES

  • Low water crossings are NOT recommended for skidder crossings and steep banks.
  • Crossing becomes impassable during high flow.
  • Trucks may muddy waters downstream of crossing.
