Fire Recovery Best Management Practices Program
The Ventura County Resource Conservation District (VCRCD) was awarded approximately $152,000 in grant funding through the State Water Resources Control Board to purchase materials for erosion control purposes on fire-impacted lands within Ventura County. Landowners impacted by the Thomas Fire are able to apply for the materials they need to help mitigate fire-based erosion on their properties.
Materials include, but are not limited to:
- Silt fencing
- Jute netting
- Filtrexx Siltsoxx
- Livestock fencing
- Native plants
- Straw wattles
- Alternative water supplies (livestock)
The last day to apply for erosion control materials is March 19, 2018.
