Erosion Control on Construction Sites

How do construction sites cause erosion? “Soil erosion is defined as the wearing away of land by the action of wind, water, or gravity or a combination of wind, water, and gravity. The result of this wearing away of land is that soil particles are dislodged and put into motion. Soil particles that are in transport or have been transported to new locations and deposited are called sediment. The sedimentation of Michigan’s water resources can adversely affect plant, animal and aquatic life by altering the size or shape of streams or covering the spawning habitat of aquatic species.” — https://www.michigan.gov/documents/dtmb/SESC_Guidebook_2019_660638_7.pdf ...
