Description: Technical note
Background: Normally, filters to protect soils from surface erosion of piping losses are made-up of layers of graded sand, gravel, and stone materials in various combinations and thicknesses. Often these materials are expensive and, in some locations , proper materials are not economically available. Even if the required materials are readily available, proper placement in the field, particularly at inwater sites can be tedious and demands close inspection.
