Erosion is a huge problem. Wind and water can move bare soil around and strip a hillside or field quickly. Plus, all that soil can get into various waterways and cause serious problems. In the worst-case scenario, erosion can actually exacerbate huge disasters, like the Dust Bowl in the 1930s. Because of the potential problems, you need to make sure that you are dealing with erosion around any worksite you are in charge of.
