The District administers the Dirt and Gravel Road Maintenance Program to treat erosion and sedimentation problems as a result of unpaved roads in Northampton County. At least 38 miles of dirt and gravel roads exist within the county, some of which may be eligible for funding to reduce the potential of sediment pollution to our streams. Only roads that have an impact to streams in the county are eligible for funding. If you are a Municipal Official and want to be considered for funding please contact us. (2017 Fact Sheet)

The current Statement of Policies should be reviewed prior to submitting an application. The policies and other information is available on the Center for Dirt and Gravel Roads website on the Northampton County Page.

 A few of the projects in Northampton County that were funded in part by the program include:

Borough of Tatamy
