Construction Site Erosion ControlErosion control is one of the most overlooked management practices at construction sites in Trempealeau County. County ordinances require that an erosion control plan be prepared and submitted to the Department of Land Management prior to doing any construction or excavating.
Installing erosion control practices at construction sites benefits your pocket book as well as the environment.
- By installing erosion control practices and immediately seeding disturbed areas limits the need to pay an excavator multiple times for doing the same work.
- Erosion control planning also decreases your taxes. Installing erosion control measures eliminates cleaning up sediment on roads and in ditches at tax payers expense.
- Sediment entering streams and lakes promotes algae and weed growth, disrupts fish reproduction and increases the need for costly dredging.
To assist you in stabilizing your construction site a hydro seeder is available to rent through the Trempealeau County Department of Land Management.
