A sediment control is a practice or device designed to keep eroded soil on a construction site, so that it does not wash off and cause water pollution to a nearby stream, river, lake, or sea.

Techniques for Successful Sediment Control

Techniques for Successful Sediment Control

Siltation in water containment structures is problematic, resulting in the loss of space in tanks and other structures such as reservoirs, ponds, and catch basins. It also increases the cost of treating drinking water, with high loads interfering with coagulation, filtration, and disinfection.

Geosynthetics for Roadway Construction

Geosynthetics for Roadway Construction

Ever since the Romans used palm fronds and other plant fiber matting to reinforce the sub-bases of their famous roads, fabrics have been used to improve road longevity and performance. Modern road construction methods rely on a family of materials called geosynthetics to achieve the same results. But these more sophisticated materials can

Waters of the US: Now’s Our Chance To Be Heard

As you’re probably aware, EPA and the US Army Corps of Engineers under the new administration are proposing to rescind the beleaguered Waters of the US Rule, also known as the Clean Water Rule, that went into effect in 2015. You have a narrow window to comment if you wish

Storm Drain Inlet Protection

Storm Drain Inlet Protection

If a stream or other waterbody is showing an increase in sediment or pollutant contamination, nearby active construction sites are usually the first suspect. As any developer or construction crew chief knows, devices to stop runoff from the site are an absolute necessity.

How to Control Sediment Erosion on Construction Sites

How to Control Sediment Erosion on Construction Sites

Work on the average construction site disrupts many cubic yards of dirt. All of that disrupted soil poses a big sediment control challenge. Given the unpredictability of storms and rainfall, controlling sediment requires vigilance. It also adds to the cost of construction projects. But if sedimentation is not controlled, the
