Erosion control and pond bank stabilization are areas of need that go un-noticed for too long until it has reached a crisis state. Erosion of the surrounding embankment tends to prematurely fill a stormwater pond in thereby robbing it of its useful life as a first line of defense in the overall goal of stormwater management. Stormwater ponds are designed to have a useful life to help settle out sediment and pollutants that would normally be directed into the open water channels.
Without any effective erosion control, the sediment that once defined your pond bank now is settling into the water. Various things can change a productive pond bank into a nightmare erosion control and bank stabilization project. Most of us have seen Geese foraging along the pond banks. As they eat the grass, they denude the area so that water from rain easily flushes the pond bank into the pond. Muskrats are another critter that causes premature erosion and bank destabilization.
