Soil Stabilization for Airport Bare Earth Erosion Control
June 2021

There are many different types of applications where a permanent soil stabilization treatment for large areas of exposed bare earth is desirable. Construction sites are one good example as they need dust control and erosion control during the interim between site preparation and construction and then a solid all-weather working platform for building operations. In the arid and semi-arid climates of much of the Western and Southwestern states, it is often not practical to plant and irrigate vegetative cover for solar and wind power sites, landfill closures and airport shoulder and infield areas. Cement and lime stabilizers are costly and ineffective for these applications. Spray-applied polymer products are effective for short-term erosion control requirement, but costly to apply and reapply.

The EMC SQUARED® System stabilizer products are uniquely effective in providing long term stabilization for areas of bare earth or constructed soil structures. Construction of a new main runway and taxiway system for El Paso International Airport (EPIA) required stabilization of approximately two million square feet of bare earth areas between the paved areas and the stormwater impoundment reservoirs. Having previously used the EMC SQUARED System products for stabilization of exposed soils at the EPIA airport, project engineers again specified the product to provide erosion resistant surfaces and protect stormwater retention reservoirs from sediment accumulation.
