The transportation industry is no stranger to the topic of Erosion and Sediment Control. Although they can occur at any time during the construction of a highway, the highest potential for erosion usually occurs during the grubbing, grading and structure installation. Additional factors affecting soil erosion include soil characteristics, climate, topography, rainfall, and vegetation.
Erosion is a natural process that can be fast-tracked by human activities, especially those that that disrupt the soil and alter the natural vegetation of the area. Erosion control best practices are necessary and required during all ground disturbing activity to reduce or treat contamination of water or which prevents or reduces soil erosion.
Erosion control plans must be given attention and importance during any phase a Transportation related project. General recommendations for preventing erosion include:
All sites should incorporate at least one type of erosion prevention measure when exposed to a ground disturbing activity. Our Envirotac line of dust control polymers are manufactured with the Environment in mind. They are safe to treat soils with and will not harm humans or wildlife.
