Tag: erosion control blanket

An erosion control blanket (ECB) is a blanket of synthetic or natural fibers to protect soil from the erosive impact of precipitation and overland flow, typically on slopes and in channels. ECBs also retain moisture and facilitate establishment of vegetation.

Managing Daily Cover and Drainage at MSW Landfill Sites

Today’s municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills are much more than places to dump household trash. They’re engineered facilities that are designed to hold and isolate the trash from the environment and are governed by both federal and state regulations.

Ecologel Solutions LLC
Enhance germination rates and seedling survival! Use Hydretain as part of your hydroseeding routine to provide more plant usable water in between scheduled waterings or rainfall. Applied with your seed, Hydretain attracts and collects individual water molecules, converting unavailable moisture vapor into plant usable water droplets. This process

Sediment Control Case Studies

Sediment Control Case Studies

In performing sediment control, Stacy’s ­Excavating typically uses silt fence, erosion logs, fabric mats, and inlet drain covers for its work. Among the items used are Blocksom and Co. products. The company’s Storm Water Inlet Filter serves as a sediment control solution for sewer inlets during the construction phase; it

TRACKING PADS
Tracking Pads are heavy-duty mats made from recycled rubber that can be laid down at construction entrances and exits, and essentially remove mud, sediment, and other debris from vehicles and equipment, capturing debris before it can be tracked out onto the roadway. Each mat measures 12 by 12 feet,

JRM CHEMICAL
JRM Chemical’s linear anionic polymers (PAM) are available in powders, emulsions, and tablets to reduce soil erosion and treat turbid water. They are also used as a tackifier with mulch and straw. Low application rates of 4 ppm or less will reduce turbidity in discharge water and reduce suspended particles

Controlling Sediment Through Perimeter Containment

Controlling Sediment Through Perimeter Containment

Work on the average construction site disrupts many cubic yards of dirt. All of that disrupted soil poses a big sediment control challenge. Given the unpredictability of storms and rainfall, controlling sediment requires vigilance. It also adds to the cost of construction projects. But if sedimentation is not controlled, the
