Tag: soil erosion

Erosion is the action of exogenic processes (such as water flow or wind) which remove soil and rock from one location on the Earth’s crust, then transport it to another location where it is deposited. Eroded sediment may be transported just a few millimetres, or for thousands of kilometres.

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

With traditional sediment control devices like straw wattles and silt fence, a drop-and-go installation style could be disastrous. Proper trenching, staking, and preparation of the BMP-soil interface means the difference between success and failure, which has led many manufacturers of sediment control products to design the next generation of more

Smart Irrigation Reduces Nitrogen Leaching

Smart Irrigation Reduces Nitrogen Leaching

While nitrogen is critical for agricultural production, too much nitrogen can negatively affect health and the environment. Ironically, excess nitrogen can even produce a harmful effect on crop yield, as well as native species and biodiversity.

Insights From the Journey

Insights From the Journey

One of the great gifts of writing is the knowledge that one gains from the research necessary to create intelligent composition. My high school English teacher—who also taught Kurt Vonnegut—once told me that there were seven basic plots in literature and not to worry about outlining a wholly original narrative,

Erosion Control Methods for Steep Slopes

Erosion Control Methods for Steep Slopes

Huge projects like the widening of US 202 in Pennsylvania span several years and several seasons. Stormwater and erosion control is an important part of the planning process, and a variety of soil erosion control devices play a role. Changing topography and limited highway easements sometimes result in steep slopes

Chemical Soil Stabilization – Part 1

Chemical Soil Stabilization – Part 1

Despite all the work done by earthmoving equipment, each year wind and rain move much more soil than man could ever hope to shovel. And because soil is a finite commodity, one has to hold on to as much of it as possible.

Plantings aid in this quest; the roots of

JRM CHEMICAL
JRM Chemical’s linear anionic polymers (PAM) are available in powders, emulsions, and tablets to reduce soil erosion and treat turbid water. They are also used as a tackifier with mulch and straw. Low application rates of 4 ppm or less will reduce turbidity in discharge water and reduce suspended particles
