Follow natural contours with roads, driveways, and utility lines

During site design, try to avoid crossing or following steep slopes with roads, driveways and utility lines. Instead, follow more natural contours. By following natural contours, erosion during construction and stormwater runoff from finished roads will be reduced. Also, roads follow the land's contours may fit into the landscape in a more attractive way.
