Multiple factors can cause erosion, and every situation calls for specific solutions based on the site and the severity of the problem. Controlling erosion is important not just for preserving the site and protecting the structures but also for minimizing the environmental impact that the project has on the surrounding area.

Major factors affecting soil erosion from precipitation events include soil characteristics, climate, rainfall intensity and duration, topography, vegetation and other surface cover.

 

Indications of erosion problems include:

  • Foundation walls that are buckled or bowed

  • Cracks in foundation walls

  • Cracks in exterior walls

  • Sunken or buckled interior concrete floors

Not only does erosion take away precious topsoil, but also clogs waterways and damages adjacent properties. What can you do to prevent erosion? The solution can be quite easy or difficult, depending on the site and the safety measures you choose to implement.
