2N RAMs for the Napa TMDL


NapaRAMTools_cover2NDNATURE continues to collaborate with Napa County resource managers to define the process and develop the tools to track progress toward achieving the goals of the Napa River Sediment TMDL. Two critical TMDL objectives are to reduce annual sediment loading from (1) roads and (2) stream channels. 2NDNATURE will apply our 2N RAM™ tool functionality and concepts to customize Rural Road RAM to Napa and create the Stream Erosion RAM. The results of Rural Road RAM and Stream RAM will be used to document the annual miles of priority roads and stream channels in good condition, as required by the Napa TMDL Integrated Tracking and Accounting System (ITAS). The final tools will be released in 2016.
