Homeowner and land developers , erosion control is important. Aside from preventing water pollution due to runoff and the potential habitat loss of nearby ecosystems, erosion control also staves off soil loss and consequently, property loss. In urban areas, erosion control techniques are primarily concerned with storm water runoff management, but soil loss due to winds and sloped properties must be considered as well. Here is a list of the common erosion control methods:

Erosion is the process that wears away the river bed and banks. Erosion also breaks up the rocks that are carried by the river.

There are four types of erosion:

  • Hydraulic action – This is the sheer power of the water as it smashes against the river banks. Air becomes trapped in the cracks of the river bank and bed, and causes the rock to break apart.
  • Abrasion – When pebbles grind along the river bank and bed in a sand-papering effect.
  • Attrition – When rocks that the river is carrying knock against each other. They break apart to become smaller and more rounded.
  • Solution – When the water dissolves certain types of rocks, limestone etc. SOXFENCE 2
