Erosion and What You Can Do About It

Erosion is a common problem in the Philippines. In fact, it is among those fortuitous events that have been known to claim lives, without regard to age or gender. At times, news items flash before our very eyes, telling us of tragedies that befell a certain family in the middle of the night because of land that eroded from higher elevations. One good thing today is that there are some entities like Dynamic Builders and Construction Co. (Phil.) Inc. which has implemented erosion control projects in various areas of Negros Occidental.

Erosion and Its Dangers


Erosion is defined as the gradual destruction of something by natural forces, such as water, wind, or ice. In the Philippines, erosion primarily results from rain and wind. With continuous soil erosion, a lot of destruction takes place in affected areas.

Little by little, the support that is necessary to maintain the integrity of the foundation is diminished. With such diminishing support, the possibility of the homes caving in is not remote. This is why if there is a need for preventing erosion from ever occurring, it is best that it would be done at the earliest to prevent greater damage.


Preventing Erosion


In some areas in the Philippines, erosion is being prevented by means of natural processes such as tree planting. Trees help in holding on to the soil, which in turn helps in preventing erosion.


There are also others which actually hire professionals in order for them to implement erosion control measures which could undeniably save both the land and the residents of the area concerned.
