Protecting Valuable Water Resources
Engineered Solutions for Erosion and Sediment Control
Soil erosion has a significant impact on valuable water resources throughout the world. Attempting to quantify the costs of soil erosion is challenging at best. The number of variables contributing to erosion along with the costs for cleaning up the effects are extensive. Soil erosion impairs water resources used for drinking, navigation, recreation or irrigation. No matter which way you look at the effects of soil erosion, the best remedy always comes back to keeping the soil where it belongs.
This is where the members of ECTC come into the picture. ECTC's members are dedicated professionals who have made it their life's work to develop the best engineered solutions for controlling soil loss and assisting with vegetation establishment. The contents of this website will help you in selecting, installing and using the engineered solution that works for your erosion problem. This site will also give you access to those experts who know more about erosion and erosion solutions than any sane person should.
The Benefits of Membership
You are invited to join the Erosion Control Technology Council and help shape the future of the erosion control industry. ECTC's mission is to increase erosion and sediment control education and standardization and to promote the proper use of rolled erosion control products (RECPs), hydraulic erosion control products (HECPs), and sediment retention fiber rolls (SRFRs) in protecting the environment. Support from all members allows ECTC to advance this mission.
New Standard Specification for Hydraulic Biotic Soil Amendment (HBSA)
A HBSA is a manufactured, pre-packaged material that is mixed with water and hydraulically-applied as a uniform slurry. HBSAs are engineered to foster the development of top soil in deficient substrates within the rhizosphere, promote faster seed germination, and provide long term nutrient cycling that enhances sustainable vegetation establishment.
