The long term effects of erosion can be devastating: the loss of trees, landscape and property, flooding damage, the depletion of groundwater, loss of property value, insufficient groundwater recharge, sediment deposits in larger water systems, and the loss of wildlife habitat and loss of biodiversity.
Although erosion is a natural process, the fragile soils in the Southwest high desert are very susceptible to major destructive erosion. Erosion frequently goes unchecked, but with minimal techniques to encourage sediment deposition, we can re-establish vegetation. Vegetation is what is needed to hold soil in place, and bring the land back to a healthier state.
Erosion control can incorporate a number of solutions to keep erosion in check. Read more about how The RainCatcher can utilize these techniques to stop devastating erosion on your property, or contact us for a free consultation.
