Wind erosion is a dominant geomorphological process in arid landscapes. Its effects contribute to the loss of soil resources and the emission of mineral dust, with major impacts on regional climate, biogeochemical cycles and human health. As an aside, ’desertification’ may sound like a course to end a sumptuous meal. But with just one ’s’, it refers to fertile land becoming dry desert. Many factors contribute to the problem, such as soil erosion, climate change and groundwater mismanagement.

Hydraulic Erosion Control Products (HECPs) are engineered mulch applied to slopes to reduce soil erosion while assisting in the establishment and growth of vegetation. An alternative to temporary Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs), hydraulically applied products can be installed up to three times faster using one-third the manpower. North American Green`s HECPs are applied in a one-step application with seed and fertilizer, with the potential for quicker installation and project cost savings compared to products requiring a two-step application. With our selection of HydraMax Systems HECPs, we can help you comply with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) effluent guidelines.
