Strategic Erosion and Sediment Management
Soil erosion is the process by which the land surface is worn away by the action of natural forces such as wind, ice, water, and gravity. Erosion is caused when sediments are detached from the soil mass, carried by water or wind, and eventually deposited as sediment. A sediment and erosion control program is a plan designed to keep eroded soil on a construction site, so that it does not wash off and cause water system pollution to nearby streams, or other water bodies.
Sediment Controls are usually employed together with eroding controller, which are designed to prevent or minimize erosion. Sediment controls are generally designed to be temporary. Erosion Control is the practice of preventing or controlling wind or water erosion in agriculture, land ontogenesis, coastal sphere, river banks and construction. Stillwater Environmental understands that effective erosion controls are important techniques in preventing soil deprivation, water pollution, wildlife habitat loss and human property loss.
