Standard Practice for Compost for Erosion/Sediment Control (Compost Blankets)
standard by American Association of State and Highway Transportation Officials, 2010



This specification covers compost produced from various organic by-products for use as a surface mulch for erosion/sediment control on sloped areas. This technique may be used for both temporary and permanent erosion/sediment control applications.

This technique is appropriate for slopes up to a 2:1 grade (horizontal distance : vertical distance) and should only be used in areas that have sheet flow drainage patters (not areas that receive concentrated flows). This technique may also be used on up to 1:1 slopes with proper consideration to lenth of slope and compost application rates (depth).
