Can Erosion Control Meet Regulatory Standards?

by Lawrence E. Dezman, Futura Engineering Inc, Denver, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Hydraulic Engineering


An erosion control design method for rainfall/surface erosion is presented that enables the designer to determine design loads and the resulting erosion control requirements. Design loads are based on performance standards derived to meet regulatory goals of governmental agencies. The method permits objective review of proposed plans and provides designers the opportunity to document compliance with standards.
