SLOPE EROSION CONTROL USING FIBERGLASS ROVING AND REINFORCED PAPER MATTING WITH GRASS

The Transportation Laboratory in cooperation with District 11 established an erosion control experiment on a very severely eroding cut slope located on I-805 in San Diego. The treatment consisted of applying fiberglass roving over a dressed and untreated slope that had been seeded and fertilized. A reinforced paper mat product (Hold-gro) was also tested. Sediment from slope erosion was collected in metal troughs placed at the base of the slope. Seed and fertilizer specifications for starting the vegetative covering are included. Precipitation was also recorded. Both treatments were effective in reducing erosion. /Author/
