Erosion Control

Ground Effects of Wisconsin Inc. offers a wide variety of Erosion Control.

Turbidity Barriers, Silt Barrier, and Silt Curtain are designed specifically to contain and control the dispersion of turbidity and silt in a water body related to marine construction, pile driving, site work (stormwater sheetflow)and dredging activities. The negative impact of this turbidity or suspended solids in water has far reaching effects on your favorite fishing hole, diving reef or swimming area, and a Silt Curtain or Silt Protector minimize these impacts by improving settling times and settling suspended solids in a defined area well away from natural resources. Floating Turbidity Barriers consist of a top floatation boom, an impervious skirt extending downward under the water, and a heavy chain sealed into a hem along the bottom of the skirt to provide ballast.

Geotextile products offer a cost-effective engineered alternative for scarce and difficult to locate natural construction materials. Geotextiles are used in many applications such as drainage, filtration, separation and soil reinforcement, as well as other areas of civil engineering and construction.

Landscape fabrics play an important role in every aspect of landscape design. They can be used to block weed and sunlight, while allowing water and fertilizers to pass through. When laying mulch, landscape fabrics can hold it in place, even on steep slopes. Using landscape fabrics reduces ongoing maintenance and herbicide use.

Geogrids are used to reinforce walls, slopes and road base layers. They provide a high level of stabilization which reduces the need for conventional designs, such as gradual slopes or cantilever walls. As fill is placed on the geogrids, the mesh design locks soil in place, providing differing levels of stability, depending on the type of geogrid used.

A Silt Fence is a temporary sediment control device used on construction sites to protect water quality in nearby streams, rivers, lakes and bays. A typical fence consists of a piece of synthetic filter fabric (also called a geotextile) stretched between a series of wooden or metal stakes. The stakes are installed on the downhill side of the fence, and the bottom edge of the fabric is trenched in the soil and backfilled on the uphill side. The fence is installed on a site before soil disturbance (earth moving) begins, down-slope from the disturbance area.
