Flooding is a common occurrence in Grays Harbor county. This farm suffered from regular flooding throughout the fall and winter. The landowner consulted with GHCD for assistance with a Farm/Equipment pad for refuge for farm equipment to include a road grader, a rotto tiller implement, a post hole digger implement, a tractor and fertilizer (containerized). The farm pad will provide safe refuge for farm equipment during flood events and preserve farmers’ assets, while improving water quality by preventing agricultural runoff to the river system.
Installation of the farm pad was completed in June 2019
