Return to index of erosion control failures

The following photos of 38 sites were taken on Sunday, July 29, 2018. They are in alphabetical order by street name. With one or two exceptions, nothing appears to have been done to correct the problems that were reported to the City on July 23, 2018. The sites were again reported to the City on July 29, 2018.

2106 Allwood


Photo 1 - no erosion controls across entrance

1804 Ann Arbor (in Barton Springs Zone)


Photo 1 - crushed silt fence

Photo 2 - silt fence not maintained; no controls across driveway

2010 Ashby (in the Barton Springs Zone)


Photo 1 - no silt fence along driveway or the curb along the street

Photo 2 - gaps in mulch sock; should be silt fence

2019 Ashby (in the Barton Springs Zone)


Photo 1 - silt fence needs to extend up driveway; on this steep slope, mulch socks laying in the gutter will not stop sediment from leaving the site

2105 Ashby (in the Barton Springs Zone)


Photo 1 - no erosion controls

Photo 2 - no erosion controls; steep slope will result in significant erosion

1113 Azie Morton (in the Barton Springs Zone)

This site has been reported multiple times (see this page). The gap in the silt fence was originally reported on May 22, 2018. Two previous videos (video from May 22 and video from July 9) show muddy water with sediment flowing through this gap.


Photo 1 - gap in silt fence still not repaired

Photo 2 -no erosion controls between and mulch socks and gutter; loose dirt will leave site if it rains

1601 Bauerle


Photo 1 - no erosion controls to the left; large mound of dirt not completely covered; mulch sock laying in gutter will not stop any sediment from leaving the site

Photo 2 - flattened silt fence and hole in silt fence

1109 Bluebonnet (in the Barton Springs Zone)

This site has been reported multiple times (see this page).


Photo 1 - various controls haphazardly assembled at bottom of slope; these controls will likely not prevent sediment from leaving the site because of the significant slope

Photo 2 - hole in curb under unsecured silt fence will allow sediment to leave; bottom of silt fence needs to be secured and filled in behind curb hole to prevent sediment from leaving

Photo 3 - silt fence along front ends just to the left of this photo with no j-hook; silt fence needs to extend all the way up the edge of the site to prevent sediment from leaving site

1902 Collier


Photo 1 - gaps in mulch sock; mangled and flattened silt fence

2100 De Verne


Photo 1 - notch in mulch sock will allow likely allow muddy water to leave site

Photo 2 - no controls across entrance

Photo 2 - hole at bottom of silt fence

Photo 3 - holes in silt fence will allow sediment to excape
