Rolled Erosion Control Product (Jute Mesh)
What is This Treatment?
Jute mesh is a lightweight, degradable, open weave textile (OWT).
When to Use This Treatment?
- Cut and fill slopes between 4:1 and 2:1 (H:V). Use Rolled Erosion Control Products (Netting) on steeper slopes.
- To use in a stream or channel below the 100-year base flood elevation (as determined by the Engineer) contact the Civil (Hydraulics) Engineer in responsible charge of the stream/channel.
- Provides immediate protection from surface erosion.
- Helps retain soil moisture improving seed germination and vegetation establishment.
- Rocks and debris may lift blankets above the soil surface, allowing erosion to occur between the blanket and the soil surface.
Surface treatment only - unlikely to improve compacted, nutrient depleted, or poorly draining soils as necessary to ensure vigorous long term vegetative cover.
