Erosion Control Products
Why We Use Erosion Products?
Erosion has been a problem since the beginning of time; shorelines degraded, topsoil lost, and hillsides washed away. It has not been until recent history that our population has recognized the extreme devastation that erosion creates. Due to this realization, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency created Phase II of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) to help with the erosion and sediment control in America.
Erosion Control Products are an essential part of any soil stabilization, reinforcement, or restoration project and is perfect for banks, slopes, hillsides or channels. The way an erosion control product works is that it prevents soil loss, reinforces surrounding areas to help vegetation develop a root structure and growth for natural erosion protection. A wide variety of products have been engineered for all scenarios of erosion from an area that needs minimal protection and rapid degradation, to a replacement for rip rap.
