Soil Erosion Control
Soil Erosion Problems?
Eroded soil causes many problems for homeowners and public facilities. Soil erosion carries away valuable topsoil containing critical nutrients, as well as excess fertilizers and pesticides. This traveling soil eventually reaches rivers and lakes. In addition, eroded soil clogs storm water facilities such as sewers, infiltration swales, and dry wells. Soil erosion around home sites, particularly new ones, can have serious consequences. New building and development causes significant site damage, often resulting in soil erosion.
Erosion controls are used in natural areas, agricultural settings or urban environments. The controls often involve the creation of a physical barrier, such as vegetation or rock, to absorb some of the energy of the wind or water that is causing the erosion. On construction sites, erosion controls are often implemented in conjunction with sediment controls such as sediment basins and silt fences. In urban areas, erosion controls are often part of storm water runoff management programs required by local governments. Eroded soil causes many problems for homeowners and public facilities.
Silt Fence can be used for inlet protection or best practices of storm water controls.
Storm Water Controls
The Coir Wattle is the perfect solution for erosion control, bank stabilization, and even stream restoration. Constructed from all natural materials (interior made from mattress coir, exterior made from coir twine), these wattles create a natural barrier that can reinforce your location while effectively filtering water. Their combination of strength and filtration, makes them a common choice for use in a range of restoration and construction site activities.
Coir Wattles can be used for inlet protection or best practices of storm water controls.
A sediment control is a practice or device designed to keep eroded soil on a construction site, so that it does not wash off and cause water pollution to a nearby stream, river, lake, or sea. Sediment controls are usually employed together with erosion controls, which are designed to prevent or minimize erosion and thus reduce the need for sediment controls. Sediment controls are generally designed to be temporary measures; however, some can be used for storm water management purposes.
A Silt Sock or Compost Sock is a mesh tube filled with composted materials that is used as a sediment-trapping device. They use filter media that allows water to pond, creating a settling of solids behind the Silt Sock. Silt Sock is used for storm sewer inlet protection or best practices of sediment controls.
