Erosion Control Season is upon the Northwest

October is here and so is the rain. With the rain brings a significant need for erosion control on a variety construction projects. It is import to make sure that open dirt is covered with some type of ground cover such as plastic sheeting, tarps or a natural barrier such as hay or straw to reduce the sediment wash-away and run-off. Once the cover is in place the next step is to divert the water to an appropriate catch basin area. One of the most popular ways to do this is through poly filled sandbags. Sandbags make an effective barrier and water divert due to their pliability and ability to form to the ground. Another option is to use pea gravel filled bags that allow water to flow through gravel at a slow rate and catch sediment.
