Terra Erosion Control Ltd.

Is a Canadian environmental service company established in 1996, specializing in the field of biotechnical slope stabilization / soil bioengineering solutions to erosion and sediment control, riparian restoration, storm water outfall protection, mining and industrial reclamation.

We offer:

  • Development of erosion control plans.
  • Biotechnical slope stabilization plans.
  • Soil and water bioengineering plans.
  • Prescriptions to control accelerated erosion while re-establishing native vegetation and surface hydrology.
  • Prescriptions for cost-effective treatment of landslides, roadside failures and stream banks that can be combined with conventional engineering.
  • Prescriptions for treatments that get stronger with time, and reduce risks while creating an aesthetically pleasing hillside, and fish and wildlife habitat.
  • Prescriptions for live sediment traps, sedimentation ponds, live check dams and turbidity curtains to control and reduce sediment delivery to water bodies and improve water quality.


Slope Stabilization

Restoration of landslides and unstable cut slopes can provide significant challenges.
>> Introduction to slope stabilization


Riparian Restoration

Protection of stream bank erosion while establishing and enhancing fish and wildlife habitat.
>> Introduction to riparian restoration


Sediment Control and Traps

Sediment control such as coffer dams, turbidity curtains, sediment traps and settling ponds, if designed, constructed, and maintained correctly, can be a significant sediment control attribute to projects.

>> Introduction to sediment control


Industrial and Mining Reclamation

Right of way corridors and mining dumps can present significant challenges with controlling soil erosion and vegetation establishment.

>> Introduction to industrial and mining reclamation


"Innovative Techniques Showcase"

Innovative techniques can provide protection of

stream banks, surface drainage and replenishment

of soil microorganisms while creating habitat.
