Agricultural Erosion Control Structures: A Design and Construction Manual - Publication 832

Agricultural Erosion Control Structures: A Design and Construction Manual - Publication 832The manual was prepared to assist contractors in the design, installation and maintenance of agricultural soil erosion control systems. It deals with the types and causes of agricultural erosion as well as the design, installation and maintenance of structures to control erosion.

An effort has been made to include the more common and traditional beneficial management practices associated with structural soil erosion control, along with an introduction and basic information on more progressive and innovative opportunities, such as soil bioengineering and other soft streambank erosion solutions. This material, along with more detailed technical information related to floodwater storage, is in the manual appendices.

The manual provides guidelines to contractors who install agricultural soil erosion control works. Although it may serve as a useful guide to engineers, it wasn't prepared as a basic engineering manual on erosion control. No attempt has been made to supply all basic theory and information. All technical information developed in the manual is based on Ontario conditions.
