Planning & Design Solutions

 
     

The RCD provides technical assistance to landowners, farmers, ranchers and other land managers in Monterey County. We provide planning and design services for a range of resource protection and conservation practices including erosion control, water quality protection, habitat enhancement, flood management, irrigation efficiency, and nutrient management. The RCDMC and its partners also provide a range of project design services including (but not limited to) hydrologic analysis, engineering design, vegetation plans, and irrigation system design.

We also provide site assessments to Monterey County landowners, growers and ranchers to evaluate resource concerns and outline the steps required to develop solutions to resource problems. If you would like more information or assistance on your property, please contact us.
