The Antelope Valley Dust Control Group is pleased to announce the launching of its long-term community-oriented restoration program.
The program focuses on the use of cost-effective land stabilization options for restoration of individual residential properties to mitigate the effects of recent dust storms and to protect against further damage.
Methods and recommendations are based on over 15 years of Antelope Valley research and hands-on experience.
Through this property restoration program, the AV Dust Control Group’s experts and staff work directly with qualifying property owners. Wind erosion experts engage in surveying property, site-specific planning and advice, development of a custom restoration plan, and ongoing availability throughout the process to further promote successful property restoration.
All AV Dust Control Group services are provided free of charge to qualifying property owners, and some participants may be awarded vegetation or other necessary plan components free of charge.
The cost of this program is being subsidized by volunteer efforts of AV Dust Control Group’s board members, experts and staff, and various contributors to our nonprofit organization. The size of this program and the number of individual properties that can be included depends in part on the financial support that we receive from community-oriented individuals, contractors and organizations.
We are very optimistic about this program, and we plan to continue it for several years into the future. We expect it to serve as a template for community-oriented participatory property restoration through the deserts of California and neighboring states.
To discuss requirements for participation in this program and any interest in sponsorship, contact Julie Schuder, president of AV Dust Control Group, at 661-618-9976.
