Erosion Control – Western MN



Issue: A sewer system update for a cooperative association in western Minnesota required multiple erosion control techniques. The project took place on over a half mile of rolling lakeshore, and within 10 feet of a stream and wetland that enter the lake.



Action: Disturbed areas were hydroseeded with Type IV wood fiber mulch in the fall. By May, grass was established throughout the project. Silt fence was installed in the areas that received runoff from the project to protect the lake and stream. Ditches were restored using straw blanket and silt sock ditch checks.
