Soil Erosion

Asked July 15, 2018, 11:03 AM EDT

The heavy rains over the last few years have given me erosion problems, as my lot is on the downside of a hill and the rear portion of the property gets unmanageable water--no flooding, just erosion of top soil and grass. Are there any bulletins on the subject. Even if I get a landscape firm to do the work, I would like to have some knowledge on the subject. Any references available through the BCPL will be useful too

Here is a publication from MDA on soil erosion.

Also, look at the attached link on storm water management. Depending upon the site you may be able to install a rain garden and other practices

Sometimes soil erosion can be a complicated issue to solve. Here are some resources. Try the Baltimore County Soil Conservation District.

Finally, you may want to contact the Watershed Specialist in your area for more information
