This private ranch, even though inland from the ocean, is affected by hurricanes which take otherwise dry conditions and hit with a heavy downfall of rain that loosens soft soils and causes serious erosion. B & H was called in to reroute water into multiple channels instead of one large one, and to create a collection pond of water for livestock. The long swale on the right of the entrance has Slopetame2 down the entire length. Another section of runoff is diverted to the east to lower the amount of stormwater entering the first inlet. Further toward the large tree there is another large section of Slopetame2 entering another inlet which is actually a culvert leading to an outfall area with recycled concrete curbing stood on end to act as barriers to slow water down. The remainder of Slopetame2 was used on either side of the road toward an opening in the fence to the main residence.

Slopetame2 is used in the bottom of this channel to prevent erosion and to collect any suspended solids prior to reaching the inlet.
Hurricane water flows down this channel of Slopetame2, the edge of which can be seen on the right.
Slopetame2 reinforces the channel protecting against hurricane effects and other heavy rainfall.
Long swale near the main entrance which is in the back of the photo. The swale is deeper than it appears. Grass is well established in this location. Seeding was apparently done at the right time to benefit from natural rainfall.
