Effective erosion control measures are crucial to managing storm water runoff, helping to mitigate water pollution, preserve wildlife and habitats, and protect property. Erosion control techniques, such as retaining walls, geotextiles and hydroseeding, help prevent water erosion for construction sites, agriculture, and river or coastal areas.
