Lakeview Plantation - The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to announce that they will be holding a Gravel Road Maintenance Workshop on Thursday, August 6, 2009 from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Boat Launch in Lake View Plantation, off the South Shore Road.

This workshop is for municipalities, private road owners and road associations.

During this workshop participants will learn about basic road building and maintenance techniques using a Front Runner. The Front Runner grader/rake is an attachment that fits on pick-up trucks utilizing a snowplow mount. It is used for road grading, maintenance, cleanup, landscaping, finish grading and snow removal on soft roads. Consisting of a row of heavy duty, flexible, spring steel tines bolted to a rugged welded steel frame, the attachment forms the configuration of a miniature road grader.

Anyone who participates in the workshop can rent the Front Runner from the District.

For more information or to register for this workshop please contact Shelia Richard or Lynn Lubas at (207) 564-2321 or e-mail us at: info@piscataquisswcd.org
