Erosion on farm, residential, or construction sites can seriously impact safety, productivity, and compliance. When soil erodes due to poor maintenance or excess moisture and rain, it can disrupt project activity or living conditions and even cause a nuisance to neighbor property owners. This page will cover some of the critical elements of the erosion inspection checklist

What Inspections Include: Inspections usually occur before the wet season or specifically during rainfall and snowmelts. Inspectors typically check for various things like construction entrance stability, inlet barriers like sandbags, and sediment barriers. In addition, they contain water accumulation and inspect the condition of mulches and grass areas or straw blankets, perimeter barriers like silt fences, sediment detention basins, and other equipment.

Why Erosion Inspection is so critical: When sediment erosion is not inspected and checked, it can cause damage to the infrastructure on the site. It can also result in massive delays and disrupt construction work causing operational and financial impact to projects. The risk also lies in the many safety hazards resulting from erosion and the time, effort, and cost to clear clogged drainage systems. There is also the essential element of compliance with legislative requirements. Violations can result in hefty fines.
