Water Erosion Control in Rivers and Waterways

Water erosion can become a severe issue if not identified and controlled in its first stage. As more and more soil particles get washed away, the soil structure becomes unsteady, threatening the wildlife and plants in the area. But that’s not it! Lack of water erosion control can eventually deteriorate the water quality as harmful chemicals from the eroded riverbank get mixed with the waterways.
