"Soil erosion is second only to population growth as the biggest environmental problem the world faces," said David Pimentel, professor of ecology at Cornell.1 "Yet, the problem, which is growing ever more critical, is being ignored because who gets excited about dirt?"
"Dirt", said Bainbridge Environmental Conference organizer Connie Waddington, "is something you don’t really think about on a day–to–day basis." Yet, she said, "ignoring dirt has contributed to the downfall of empires."
Latest Technology to Control Land Erosion and Contain Sediment.
On a global basis, your Site Development Manager provides technical assistance to property owners, communities, local governments, businesses, & the construction industry.
Your solution is guaranteed amid these techniques:
Global resources for the prevention and control of erosion and sediment begs the question from and is influenced by principles of environmentalism, including ecology, conservation, stewardship, responsibility and sustainability.
Areas of concern in environmental law include air quality, water quality, global climate change, agriculture, biodiversity,, species protection, pesticides and hazardous chemicals, waste management, remediation of contaminated land and brownfield sites, smart growth, sustainable development, impact review, and conservation, stewardship and management of public lands and natural resources." 2
Applications for Strengthening Infrastructure Development focuses on best management practices for supporting environmental site services that remove pollution or contaminants from errosional media such as coastal, soil, water, wetlands, or wind, nonpoint source pollution.
These methods are also applicable in the weathered colluvial surface of a rock slope that tends to fail during the rainy season, or in areas with expansive soils where the zone of water causes the upper seasonal soils to become weak due to seasonal drying and wetting.
Once developed, the land has more roofs, roads, parking lots, and compacted turf. Impervious surfaces like these send more runoff across landscapes, and consequently, the risk of fooding is increased. Urban runoff impairs water quality in streams, lakes and wetlands by delivering sediment, nutrients, hydrocarbons and other pollutants. Ground water recharge is also reduced by these impervious surfaces.
Environmental engineers increase the factor of safety against failure on an existing slope or mitigate shallow slope failures.
Your products for erosion control agents is a response to various processes, and resulting sedimentation using :
These practices may also be utilized directly on slow moving slides and to resistintg soil creep.
As EPA regulations become more stringent, your handbook of erosion materials & stormwater controls would be remiss if it did not list a complete line of products for enhanced bioremediation that filter sediment thus preventing ’aggradation’ (raising of the rive) after pollution and soil loss. Erosion control may arise in natural areas, agricultural settings or urban environments, the latter of which is often characterized as stormwater runoff.
Essential to every construction project.
As an aside, your forum presents stategies, essential to every construction project. that explore the use of
There are a vast variety of erosion control methods available.
What method (s) you choose is determined by what your specific problem is and your budget.
Consult global, state & local regulations––many communities now have strict methods for erosion control for certain land practices.
