Erosion is the process in which water or wind transports sediment from unprotected ground surfaces.  40% of the pollution entering our waterways is caused by sediment transport which can impact drinking water supplies, as well as the ecological health of streams, lakes and rivers used for recreational purposes.

With the increase in construction projects region-wide, erosion problems have dramatically increased.  Increased volumes of storm runoff, from sites where the vegetation is disturbed, accelerate soil erosion and sediment transport.

No erosion control measures or inadequate practices cause significant impact to our clean water. Installation and maintenance of erosion control, “best management practices,” can greatly reduce the off-site impact of erosion.
