Grade Control Structure
How it works
How it helps
Grassed, non-eroding waterways made possible with a grade control structure give better water quality, can be crossed with equipment, and
look better than non-stabilized gullies.
If it is planned to store water, a grade control structure may provide a water source and habitat for wildlife.
Is the planned location in the proper place to achieve the level of control you want?
Obtain any necessary easements or permits.
Remove all trees and shrubs within 30 feet of the structure. *
Clear debris approximately 50 feet downstream from the spillway outlet. *
Repair any cracks in concrete.
Keep outlets free of debris.
* Check for local recommendations.
