A new publication, ASTM Standards on Erosion and Sediment Control Technology: 3rd Edition, features 76 of the latest ASTM specifications, test methods, practices, and guides for minimizing soil erosion and controlling sediment delivery to lakes, streams, and other bodies of water.

A May 14 press release from ASTM described the book as “a vital resource for designers, specifiers, landscape architects, developers, resource managers, excavation contractors, landscapers, site inspectors, and permit enforcement personnel.”

The ASTM standards featured in the publication address erosion and sedimentation processes caused by wind, rain, flowing water, and wave attack, and cover manufactured products and natural materials, according to the release. Manufactured products include mulches and tackifiers, biodegradable blankets, turf reinforcement mats, sediment retention and filtration devices, gabions, grout-filled mats, geotextiles, and articulating concrete block systems.

ASTM Standards on Erosion and Sediment Control Technology: 3rd Edition, is available for $249 in print (450 pages; 8.5 x 11, soft cover; ISBN: 978-0-8031-7031-5; Stock #: EROSION12).
