ENCAP Erosion Control Minute – Compost Logs

The next episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Mintue will examine an alternate sediment control practice to traditional silt fence. Compost best management practices have been used extensively throughout the Midwest as both erosion and sediment control measures. In this episode of the Erosion Control Minute we will examine the use of compost filter logs for sediment control.

Winter can be a difficult time for erosion and sediment control in the Midwest. Frozen ground conditions coupled with snow melt and rainfall can wreak havoc on erosion and sediment control measures. Additionally, frozen ground conditions make installation of many BMPs impractical or impossible. Compost logs can be a viable alternative and one of the few BMPs that can be applied during this difficult time of year. Get the detail on this episode of the ENCAP Erosion Control Minute.
