Erosion Control Services
Erosion Control is probably the most serious & expensive problem for stormwater ponds. Erosion repair costs often climb to hundreds of thousands & sometimes millions of dollars.
Beautiful Ponds can rebuild most eroded shorelines. More importantly, the Beautiful Ponds lake management program stops erosion before it progresses to a dangerous & costly level. Almost all stormwater repair projects are in the mild to moderate category.
Most communities recognize erosion problems before repair is necessary. Shoreline protection & stabilization with aquatic plants & filter zones is all they need.
Here are some articles to help you take charge of your community’s erosion risks.
