Erosion Control and Your Bottom Line

March 12, 2012

Let’s start off with a basic definition: what is erosion control? It is the practice of preventing or controlling water erosion in land development and construction.

Most people do not realize the importance of erosion control. It is not only crucial to preserving our water ways, it can also lower your bottom line.

There’s the old saying, good things come to those who wait, but those who wait to deal with erosion problems until after development and construction can get slapped with huge fines.

A construction site is allowed a small percentage of polluted water to run back into a stream. If you exceed this amount the EPA will fine you 32,500 dollars each day the problem is not fixed. You could rack up a huge fine and drive up your bottom line exponentially.

Be proactive about cleaning the runoff water before it leave your bank account eroded.
