The objective of the study was to investigate the possible application of inexpensive soil stabilization treatments for the purpose of reducing or preventing soil erosion on construction sites and consequent downstream sediment problems. Treatments were evaluated by measuring erosion loss of treated soil specimens exposed to a severe standardized rainfall test sequence. Treatments investigated included modest percentages of portland cement, hydrated lime, or waste cement plant dust incorporated with the soil by mixing and compaction, or by application in slurry form over the surface of previously compacted specimens.
