Efficacy of Erosion Control Blankets and Soil Stabilizers

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  05/20/2000

Summary:

This report presents the results of a two-year field study on the performance of erosion control products under natural and artificial rainfall conditions. The impact of the erosion control treatment was substantial for early season artificial events. The sediment loading rates from the blankets and bonded fiber matrix plots were roughly one hundred times smaller than the bare soil plots and 10 times smaller than the straw mulch plots.
