|LEED requires effective erosion and sedimentation controls. These controls must be planned, installed, and documented on every LEED project. Lile Engineering helps clients and contractors install effective erosion controls and meet LEED requirements.A common myth is that haybales make good erosion control structures. This is a fallacy. Here is a photo of a haybale silt fence that has been undercut by erosion, completely compromising its ability to slow water and filter out silt.|

Until next time,
