Web-based program assists in erosion and sediment control work
Profile Products LLC has launched a new Web-based program called Profile Soil Solutions Software (PS³). This design and product selection tool enables design professionals, agencies and contractors to access engineering and agronomic assistance for erosion and sediment control quickly and easily.PS³ is the first and only erosion control design and selection program that integrates hydraulically applied and rolled erosion control products, sediment retention fiber rolls and prescriptive agronomic formulations to develop agronomically sound erosion and sediment control site solutions. In addition, it provides complete design documentation, including product specifications, installation guidelines, CAD drawings and other pertinent technical information. The new software will be showcased at the 2009 IECA conference in Reno, Nev., and is accessible at www.profileps3.com."The new PS³ software provides professionals with a holistic and sustainable approach toward cost-effective erosion control, vegetative establishment and subsequent reductions in sediment and other associated pollutants from leaving disturbed sites and entering water bodies," said Michael Robeson, M.S., P.E., CPESC, technical services manager for Profile.
