Title:GreenScapes Success Story: Improving Highway Safety Through Erosion Control
Document Date:08/01/2005
Description:This GreenScapes Success Story discusses the use of organic and environmentally friendly compost-based erosion control techniques to address blowing sand from a steep sandy slope next to Interstate 84 in Glenns Ferry, Idaho, a problem that reduced visibility and created dangerous driving conditions that could shut down a stretch of the Interstate. Using an ""erosion blend"" compost from Utah-based Miller Companies, LC, GreenCover America's compost blankets and berms aim to control erosion through complete and rapid revegetation.
