1.25 Sediment Removal


Sediment trapped in a buffer will change flow into the buffer over time, often resulting in concentrated flows. Periodic removal of accumulated sediment may be necessary. Use erosion control practices in source areas to reduce sediment load and minimize the need for future sediment removal from the buffer. Prevent a ditch or berm from being created along the inflow length of the buffer due to tillage or deposition.
