Erosion Control Is Key To Protecting Our Environment
Climate control? Global warming? Environmental sustainability? Pollution? Soil Deterioration? These are just a few of the terms most people have probably heard of, but there is one phrase the average person should get to know…
If you’re a contractor or project manager on a construction site, you probably know erosion control like the back of your hand. From silt fence and wattles to geotextiles and erosion blankets, these solutions are no foreign concept to the construction site.
Not only is erosion control EPA mandated, but also vital to the sustainability of the land and overall success of the project.
And although erosion control is well-known in the construction industry, erosion takes place all around us. Erosion control is traditionally categorized into three categories: organic, inorganic, and vehicular.
Regardless of the category, proper installation of BMP Devices (Best-Management-Practices) or Erosion Control methods will mitigate soil and land deterioration. This means that streams will flow as they should. Forestation will provide stability against mudslides and irrigation to prevent against flash floods. These are just a few examples of how erosion control can protect the very world we live in.
At Asimpa, we’ve made it our mission to offer erosion control and site support services at the highest level of quality and safety. We educate ourselves and customers alike to produce sustainable solutions for the environment that stand the test of time.
