Using Polyacrylamide (PAM) to Reduce Erosion

One approach to reducing this type of erosion is to use chemical treatments to augment seeding and mulching. The chemical polyacrylamide (PAM) is well suited for erosion control enhancement, and its use is described below.

Using Polyacrylamide (PAM) to Reduce Erosion

Using Polyacrylamide (PAM) to Reduce Erosion on Construction Sites at no charge to determine the best PAM for your site. • Seed germination and survival may be enhanced by PAM by increasing soil moisture through greater infiltration. • PAM does not improve soil structure, but it will help maintain the existing structure for a period

Polyacrylamide use for erosion and turbidity control

Streams and lakes adjacent to construction sites are often heavily impaired by sediment and turbidity coming from areas of exposed soil. A study was conducted to determine if the application of polyacrylamide (PAM) can reduce erosion and runoff turbidity on moderate to steep slopes at construction sites.

BMP C126: Polyacrylamide (PAM) for Soil Erosion Protection

Polyacrylamide (PAM) is used on construction sites to prevent soil erosion. Applying PAM to bare soil in advance of a rain event significantly reduces erosion and controls sediment in two ways. First, PAM increases the soil’s available pore volume, thus increasing infiltration through flocculation and reducing the quantity of stormwater runoff.

Using Polyacrylamide to Reduce Soil Erosion

Polyacrylamide (PAM) is one such measure. PAM is a long-chain synthetic polymer that acts as a strengthening agent, binding soil particles together. It is harder for water to move these larger, heavier particles of soil. USDA researchers in Kimberley, Idaho began working with PAM in the early 1990s as a method to reduce erosion in furrow irrigation.

Polyacrylamide Use for Erosion and Turbidity Control

This study was conducted to determine if the application of polyacrylamide (PAM) to soil surfaces on construction sites reduces erosion and turbidity. Polyacrylamide has been demonstrated to greatly reduce erosion in furrow irrigation, and there is limited evidence it controls erosion when applied to bare soil.
