Environmentally Sound Practices in the Home Building Industry: Chapter 07: Erosion and Sediment Controls
Chapter Abstract: This is clip 7 of 8 for this video. The construction process should always minimize erosion. Any unavoidable erosion should not be transported off-site. Four practices should be emphasized. 1) Stabilization of soil of temporary seeding. 2) Perimeter controls to prevent off-site transportation of soil. 3) Entrance / Exit stabilization to prevent tracking of soil. 4) Storm drain inlet protection. Regular inspections of these controls help to ensure they are functioning properly.
