Patent No. 6,409,427

Issued: June 25, 2002

Inventor: Walter S.  Maxwell, III; 11000 Tannery Creek Rd., Corning, NY 14830


A soil erosion collector that fits in a standard two foot drainage ditch. It is preferably formed of pre-cast reinforced concrete. Its purpose is to separate eroded soil in storm run off. The soil Erosion Collector is designed to create a ponding effect, which will slow the flow of water in a ditch, allowing eroded soil and debris to settle. The invention comprises a body with solid intersecting lower sides which meet at an angle to fit into the drainage ditch. A dam connects the sides, with the top of the dam forming a "V" shaped spillway at a lowered central portion.
