Post-fire Gully & Headcut Repair Demo Project at Pepperwood

A Stewardship Partnership with Sonoma RCD

This video was created to demonstrate five different types of headcut and gully repair erosion control practices in a post-fire landscape that landowners can potentially do themselves on their own properties. This demonstration project was funded through the State Water Resources Control Board’s 319h Grant program and took place in September 2022 at the Pepperwood Preserve Property in Santa Rosa, California. Sonoma Resource Conservation District designed and oversaw the implementation of the project with assistance from Prunuske Chatham Inc. The project was constructed by Spye General Engineering. Time codes for each of the five headcut treatments are listed below:
