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

Compost: The Sustainable Solution

The use of recycled organics is one of our nation’s greatest assets, and we can utilize them to address several of society’s vexing challenges. The commercialization of composting as an economic method to manage organic (carbon-based) “wastes” got its rebirth in the late 1970s, and has grown from coast to

9 Benefits to Using Compost for Erosion and Sediment Control

Erosion and sediment control. Although still considered relatively unknown in certain regions of North America, the use of compost in erosion and sediment control has been a very successful landscaping practice for over 25 years. Compost blankets (the application of a layer of compost on hill slopes), compost berms, and

Sinking wheels, muddy feet, lame horses and livestock, trade goods ruined—these might have been just a few of the reasons why humans developed pavers thousands of years ago as an answer to a better surface. While the Romans come to mind as the first to build paver-based roads around 156

Putting the Brakes on Silt – Part 2

“For years, a crew would have to come out to a job site and install SiltSoxx in the field with big blower trucks,” says Zock. “Some people didn’t like that, and sometimes it was hard to get scheduled. That’s all changed.”

Filtrexx still has professionally certified teams all over the United

When it comes to versatility, erosion control contractors rely on silt fence and wattles—or other rolled or berm-shaped filtration products—as the workhorses of a job site. They are used as sediment barriers, as check dams to slow the flow of water and sediment (placed perpendicular to the downhill flow of

Road Control

Road Control

On highways under construction and those being repaired throughout North America, the challenge for contractors is to come up with effective methods for erosion and sediment control. Common challenges include working around traffic-which sometimes means working during non-peak hours or at night-protecting existing inlets and catch basins along the roadways,
