Sheetflow Construction Erosion and Sediment Control

Inspecting Plastic Sheet Installed on Slope

Plastic sheet is a good, temporary practice you can use to protect soil from soil erosion and sediment loss from a slope. When used, you need to make sure that the plastic is installed so that all the clean rainwater that runs off doesn’t end up dirty because it ran onto bare soil. The clean water needs to be collected and piped away from the bare dirt, or the plastic needs to be run all the way to the bottom of the slope into a stable ditch covered with grass, erosion control blanket, rock or other soil erosion prevention measure.
