The erosion control toolbox has emerged at a rapid rate as owners and specifiers seek solutions search permanent solutions for complex ground stabilization problems. Driven by stronger regulatory requirements, site developers today have access to a dramatically expanded set of erosion control tools.
Driven by the Clean Water Act of 1972, high demand has provided expanded options for protecting soil and for providing lasting value to property owners. Today’s site planners can choose from a wide variety of products to meet the demand for cost effective and sustainable solutions.
Attendees can expect to be brought up to date on not only product innovations, but also on the development of reliable tools for specifiers and the important progress that has been made in creating performance-based industry standards.
