Soil Erosion, Runoff, and Sedimentation

What Is Sedimentation? Sediment the result of erosion. Sedimentation is the build‐up of eroded soil particles that are transported in runoff from their site of origin and deposited in drainage systems, on other ground surfaces, or in bodies of water or wetlands. Why Should I Care?
