Abstract:

Environmental protection and enhancement of the natural resources of Army installations have become and integral part of the design, construction, operation, and maintenance activities on those installations. In 1975, the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station WES began a study to provide technical support i.e. basic data and methodology needed for the effective implementation of the rangeland conservation and restoration portions of the Fort Carson Land Use and Management Plan. This report describes the methods used by Fort Carson to control soil erosion, provides data on the areas where these control methods were used, presents data and results on the effectiveness of the restoration methods used at Fort Carson, and reviews soil erosion control methodologies. The soil erosion control methods used by Fort Carson land management personnel include both vegetative, i.e. establishment of vegetative cover, and mechanical methods, i.e. construction of sediment basins and debris dams.
