This comprehensive new edition provides 76 of the latest ASTM specifications, test methods, practices, and guides for minimizing soil erosion and controlling sediment delivery to lakes, streams, and other receiving water bodies.
These standards address erosion and sedimentation processes caused by wind, rain, flowing water, and wave attack. They cover manufactured products and natural materials. Natural materials include soil, rock riprap, and live materials, such as willows and grasses used for erosion and sediment control. Manufactured products include mulches and tackifiers, biodegradable blankets, turf reinforcement mats, sediment retention and filtration devices, gabions, grout-filled mats, geotextiles, and articulating concrete block systems.
This edition is a vital resource for designers, specifiers, landscape architects, developers, resource managers, excavation contractors, landscapers, site inspectors, and permit enforcement personnel.
