Ditch Maintenance Program

Summary:

Restoring drainage systems to historic conditions to allow the free flow of water, reducing larval mosquito development from that area.

Aspects:

Mosquitoes need still, stagnant water to complete their metamorphosis from egg to adult. The CMMCP conducts maintenance on ditches, culverts and man-made ponds to improve water quality and increase water flow, reducing the potential for mosquito breeding.
