Projects and developments face increasing scrutiny to ensure they meet their environmental responsibilities when it comes to erosion management and sediment control. More and more project managers and developers are being carefully watched from both a public and regulatory standpoint, with erosion management playing a key role in works protection and prevention of re-work.
