SL196: Flatwoods Citrus Best Management Practice: Riser-Board Structures

Figure 2. Typical riser-board structure within a citrus grove drainage system. Note: Wooden catwalks should be routinely inspected for decay. Wood degrades relatively quickly in the environment, exposing operators to increased dangers associated with breakage or slickness. These catwalks should also be wide enough to allow easy access for workers, without requiring a balancing act.
