embankment slope


Explanation:
i think it's enough!:)

When rill erosion or gullies form on embankment slopes, repairs should be
done immediately. Eroded areas should be backfilled with well-compacted
soils (the upper four inches friable topsoil) and revegetated. In instances
where deep gullies have formed, straw bales or erosion control fencing
may be needed until a permanent fix can be established. The cause of the
gully formation, such as a concentrated flow in a groin or as the result of
a low area on the crest or slope, should determined and taken into
account when repairing the area.
