The Role of Erosion Control on the Panama Canal Expansion Project

The Role of Erosion Control on the Panama Canal Expansion Project

EVERY EROSION CONTROL project is mission critical, but the Panama Canal expansion project, completed in June 2016, is arguably in a class by itself, given the scale of the undertaking and the waterway’s strategic importance to international commerce. The dirt-and-rock slopes created from the dredging of nearly 50 million cubic

Hydroseeding for Transportation Projects

Hydroseeding for Transportation Projects

Hydroseeding has connections with most forms of transportation, including revegetation around highways, airports, and mass transit projects. It is even a part of water-related travel, if one considers work done on the grounds at marinas, shipping channels, and ports.

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

Stopping Dust

Stopping Dust

Years ago, dust was an accepted result of construction, of driving on unpaved roads, and of some industrial activities. In 1970, the Clean Air Act changed that. Three types of particulate matter (less than 10 microns, less than 2½ microns, and lead) were classified as health hazards. State and local

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
