Erosion and Sediment Control
Unchecked erosion and sedimentation create a cascade of problems for both the environment and construction projects. When soil is washed away, it can suffocate aquatic life in nearby water bodies, disrupt ecosystems, and degrade water quality, turning pristine rivers murky and polluted.
For construction and industrial sites, uncontrolled erosion exposes companies to costly regulatory fines as agencies enforce strict environmental standards. These fines can be a significant unexpected expense, straining budgets. The bottom line is that unchecked erosion can lead to severe project delays.
As eroded soil accumulates, work areas may become unsafe or inaccessible, forcing work stoppages until conditions are remedied. In effect, failure to control erosion and sediment carries high environmental, financial, and operational risks.
