Slope - Product Selection Tool

The tools given here will assist you in selecting appropriate erosion control products. The following information is provided as a first step in the careful evaluation of the erosion control materials best suited to the site conditions and needs.

To use these charts you will need to select the slope gradient applicable to your project. After selecting the slope gradient, you will need to select the functional longevity (i.e. the time the project must work before degrading to establish vegetation) for your project site. Once you select the functional longevity, you will be presented with a chart containing products that may work on your job site. Please review the product literature provided by the manufacturer before making your final decision. There is a link to the manufacturer's website where the product literature can be found. These charts contain general recommendations and your project site may have other conditions that may influence type of product needed.

Disclaimer:

These charts contains only general recommendations for the use of commercially available rolled erosion control products (RECPs) and hydraulic erosion control products (HECPs) and must not be used for actual product selection without consideration of more site-specific design factors. The manufacturer of the product listed has provided all performance values shown. These manufacturers will, upon request, provide the independent test data to back up the claims. The ECTC and its members accept no liability for misuse of this information.
