Erosion control is the practice of preventing or controlling wind or water erosion in agriculture, land development, river banks & construction.
Sodding - Seeding
Slopes are where erosion problems start, both seed-sown grass & sod work help to stop the problem.
Hydroseeding is a planting process that uses a slurry of seed & mulch. Hydroseeding holds moisture better than sod or hand seeded types, therefore the seeds can germinate quicker.
A silt fence is a temporary sediment control device used on construction sites to protect water quality in nearby streams, rivers, lakes & seas from sediment (loose soil) in stormwater runoff.
Silt Socks allow water to flow through at a controlled rate while trapping sediment. This is accomplished by a filter fabric filled with 1/2″ – 2″ filter material.
STORM WATER POLLUTION PREVENTION PLAN
As runoff flows over land & impervious surfaces, it accumulates debris, chemicals, sediment, etc., that could adversely affect water quality if the runoff discharge is untreated. This will lead to unsafe water for drinking, fishing, swimming & other activities.
