Erosion Control

Erosion controls are used in natural areas, agricultural settings or urban environments. In urban areas erosion controls are often part of storm-water runoff management programs required by local governments. The controls involve the creation of a physical barrier, such as vegetation or rock, to absorb some of the energy of the wind or water that is causing the erosion. They may also involve building and maintaining storm drains. Southeastern Site Development implements erosion control in conjunction with sediment controls such as sediment basins and silt fences.

Our team of workers are trained in the most effective erosion control methods.  Water, along with wind, is a primary agent of erosion. Water will always run downhill; however, it will run uphill when the volume of water flooding an area moves the water out of its banks and up into higher ground.

Prior to the onset of construction Southeastern Site Development will make a plan to slow the movement of water. We will work to develop the plan to effectively control the erosion before it has the potential for damage to the property or buildings.
