Erosion is a natural process, but if it happens too fast, it can harm the environment. Effective erosion control measures prevent the movement of soil sediments off-site/land, reducing land and water quality risks. Eco-friendly erosion control methods like revegetation and slope modification slow down water flow, helping soil stay intact longer. Additionally, they can promote post-construction vegetation growth that will reduce erosion long after construction crews leave the site.
Preventing Sediment Pollution
Erosion is one of our planet’s most critical issues, as a football field’s worth of soil gets lost every five seconds. Without effective erosion control, this soil can wash away and deplete nutrients from the land, alter the landscape, and pollute nearby water systems. Effective erosion control North Augusta, SC, prevents soil loss and protects the surrounding plants, wildlife habitat, river banks, and construction sites. The most effective way to stop erosion is by planting vegetation. (more…)
