ENCAP Erosion Control Minute – Rip Rap Placement


We will be on-site at a stormwater detention basin and compensatory storage area inspecting erosion around a rip rap overflow weir. The key elements of rip rap placement and some of the considerations to take into account when designing and installing overflow weirs will be examined in this episode.

We also will be covering one of the overlooked elements in geotextile fabric selection on project sites. We hope you find it a valuable lesson in proper BMP design, selection, and installation.
