Erosion control on commercial construction sites is critical to prevent soil erosion and sedimentation, which can damage nearby ecosystems and waterways. Common methods used for erosion control on construction sites such as sediment basins, and silt fences. Sediment basins are large pits that capture sediment-laden water and allow sediment to settle out before the water is discharged off-site. Silt fences are temporary barriers made of geotextile fabric that trap sediment and allow clean water to pass through.
