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.

New Converts to Compost and Kilowatts

New Converts to Compost and Kilowatts

In 1915, a tragic farm accident reported in The Fruit Grower and Farmer was a mere footnote of local news. Patients from the State Hospital in Athens, OH, whose job was “to tramp down the silage comprised of corn stalks and leaves” were found asphyxiated in a tower silo. The report says

Project Profile – Barren Arkansas Roadside Springs to Life

AFTER COMPLETING AN OPEN-CUT slope for a recent highway project, the Arkansas State Highway and Transportation Department (AHTD) encountered a difficult mitigation challenge: a soil bed totally unsuitable for organic growth. The highly acidic soil, composed primarily of clay, rejected initial attempts at sustainable vegetation and threatened to create a

How to Control Sediment Erosion on Construction Sites

How to Control Sediment Erosion on Construction Sites

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

The Costs and Benefits of Anaerobic Digesters

The Costs and Benefits of Anaerobic Digesters

Anaerobic digesters are a mature, proven technology. They take sludge, manure, and other organic waste materials and produce methane (natural gas) fuel. Nobody questions their technological capabilities. However, the question remains as to their economic benefits. In terms of dollars and cents, how much economic sense do anaerobic digesters make?

Managing for Drought

Managing for Drought

The mania for a green lawn, or in some cases green anything, across many regions of the US has been quelled by recent droughts (thankfully now abating). Even long before water meters were spinning at record rates for golf resorts, private homes, and corporate campuses, scientists have been devising technologies
