A revised and updated guidance document by the Erosion Control Technology Council (ECTC) is now ready for industry professionals.
Titled “A Technical Guidance Manual: Terminology, Index & Performance Testing Procedures for Rolled Erosion Control Products,” can be found on ECTC’s Web site, www.ectc.org under the “Testing” category in the “Documents & Tools” section.
The document was originally developed by the ECTC to aid in the understanding and use of the most recent terminology, index/physical property test methods, and performance research for RECPs. It also was intended to assist engineers, geologists, soil scientists, landscape architects, contractors, and research facilities within the erosion control industry in the selection of RECPs. The new document continues with these efforts and includes bench scale testing information. It also contains updates to all ASTM standards to reflect the current state of practice.
