Erosion Control Begins with a Plan

EPS Erosion control services start with planning. After developing a proper SWPPP with your EPS Qualified SWPPP Developer (QSP), EPS will implement and maintain BMPs to reduce construction pollution runoff in active construction sites as well as establishing permanent BMPs for long term protection.

Temporary BMPs include items like Fiber Roll, Silt Fence, Wattles. Permanent BMPs include items like rock mulch, revegetation, landscaping, and impervious surfaces like concrete and asphalt. See all BMPs.


A Perfect Environment for Deep Rooted Growth

Depending on the project location, soil type and engineer specifications, EPS uses a proprietary Hydroseed mixture consisting of paper mulch, wood mulch, seed, soil amendments and plant based tackifiers. The mixture is then paddle agitated in our Hydroseeders to a desired consistency that yields a sprayable slurry. The slurry is applied to the properly prepared soil at various rates to create an optimal germination environment for the seed. When the slurry dries, it creates a mat over the soil, protecting it from drip impact erosion as well as providing optimal moisture retention. For projects with nutrient deficient soils, EPS incorporates a sprayable liquid compost into the slurry to enhance seed germination.


Temporary BMPs Become Permanent

Many temporary BMPs become permanent BMPs with the addition of Hydroseed. The installation of Biodegradable Coir-Net Erosion Control netting coated with a Bonded Fiber Matrix Hydroseed slurry virtually eliminates drip impact and slope erosion. When the native seed blend takes root within the Erosion Control netting they become one permanent BMP.

When Native Species Need a Boost

Even though a seed mix is native to the area where it is being used, some seed mix designs may reveal the need for additional stabilization we refer to as a boost. Should boosting a native species be required, EPS has you covered with custom made seed mix designs, based on professional consultation, for boosting native species and increasing soil stabilization.


the building blocks of your SWPPP

Best Management Practices, known as BMPs are the building blocks that make up your Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP). The BMPs you’ll find in your EPS SWPPP correspond with state requirements. The designations are as follows.
