Universal Soil Loss Equation for Construction Sites

Universal Soil Loss Equation for construction sites imageThe Universal Soil Loss Equation (USLE) for Construction Sites worksheet is an Excel spreadsheet developed by Dane County Water Resource Engineering to estimate soil loss from sheet and rill erosion on construction sites.

The purpose of the spreadsheet is to create a uniform process for calculating soil loss and to eliminate some of the human error caused by interpolating tables or math calculations. It was created for Dane County use only and does not predict soil loss resulting from gully erosion. Contact Jeremy Balousek at balousek@countyofdane.com with questions.
