Human activities disturb the balance of water in the hydrologic cycle, causing more surface runoff and less infiltration.
Deforestation, irrigation and urbanization contribute to lower water table levels, reduced quality of groundwater, increased flooding, erosion, and pollution of our water.
Impervious soil layers restrict infiltration of water. This can cause the soil to become overly saturated, leading to poor vegetation growth and unstable ground. Around building foundations, saturated soils allow water to weep through concrete causing damage to health and property.
EGRP infiltrates water faster. It heals saturated and muddy soils.
EGRP protects leaking basements and keeps underground installations dry.
