Erosion and Stormwater management

Erosion is the process of natural elements wearing away soil, rock, and land. Sedimentation is when those eroded particles begin to move, shift, and settle into other areas. Why is sediment and erosion control important? It prevents water pollution, property damage, soil loss, and damage to wildlife habitats. At Bayside Environmental, we use sediment and erosion control techniques that protect the environment and follow city and state requirements.
