Erosion Control & Best Management Practices

HydroSpec installs the following Best Management Practices (BMPs) to prevent or resolve erosion problems. Your project manager will help you decide which erosion control solution and products are best for your site. Some of the BMP's include:

  • DOT Silt Fence: HydroSpec only uses DOT approved silt fence.
  • Erosion Control Blankets (ECB): HydroSpec uses ECBs to help prevent runoff until vegetation is established.
  • Geotextile Fabrics: HydroSpec uses several types of fabrics in varying weights.
  • Driveway Fabrics: HydroSpec uses driveway fabrics for roads, parking lots, or to stabilize material staging areas or repairing/installing a gravel driveway to save time and money.
  • Grading and Bobcat Services: HydroSpec uses its own professional crews to prepare sites for implementation of erosion control solutions. This speeds up the time needed to remove debris, place rock, or trench silt fences.
  • Hydroseeding: HydroSpec uses several different formulas of seed. Straw Blowing is also recommended to protect your seed investment. HydroSpec has machines that will lay the straw ten times faster and use 20% less straw than hand spreading!
  • Polymer Applications: By using our advanced polymers HydroSpec can determine if we can improve water quality.
  • Rip wrap: Hydrospec installs rock, coarse stone or boulders on the edge of a bank or water shore to provide shoreline erosion control.
