Coastal San Luis Resource Conservation District (CSLRCD) provides technical assistance in preparing plans for compliance with San Luis Obispo County’s Agricultural Grading ordinance. Plans are prepared by a licensed civil engineer with experience in both erosion and sediment control and with agricultural infrastructure.


CSLRCD is also working with the County of SLO to develop an Erosion Control Short Course that certify landowners to be able to perform Agricultural Grading themselves, without the need for a licensed engineer to prepare plans.
