Stabilization & Erosion Control

Service: Stabilization & Erosion Control

Erosion is the major contributor to decreased water clarity and sedimentation in lakes and ponds. ILM is capable of performing construction site erosion control for NPDES permitting, developing Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plans (SWPPP), and file for Notice of Intent (NOI) and Notice of Termination (NOT) with the IEPA. ILM has a Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control (CPESC) and a Certified Professional in Stormwater Quality (CPSWQ) through the International Erosion Control Association. We also have a Designated Erosion Control Inspector (DECI) on staff. ILM can also design and build for erosion control surrounding lakes, ponds and streams. Techniques for stabilizing the shoreline and banks of a pond, lake, or stream may vary depending on the condition of the site. ILM assesses each site on an individual basis and will then recommend the most feasible option, or combination of options, in conjunction with an ongoing maintenance program.  This may include installation of a native buffer
with seed and/or plant plugs, wildlife control or hardscaping with rock or other materials.
