There are several key differences between sediment control and erosion control. Erosion control aims to reduce and prevent the erosion of soil from repetitive impacts such as raindrops and sheet flow. Whereas sediment control deals with sediment that becomes displaced or shifted. In this blog, we discuss the importance of these control measures, the difference between erosion and sediment movement, and the control methods that you can apply.
Coir is a natural fibre that comes from coconut husk, and it’s one of the core materials in ship ropes because of its strength, durability and resistance to water damage. It is now commonly used for erosion control by placing coir logs on the banks of water bodies. Coir logs are an excellent tool for restricting erosion while allowing the environment to flourish and stabilise the ground.
