Look Before You Leap

Look Before You Leap

Many popular sayings are polar opposites of each other. “Look before you leap” is the exact opposite of “He who hesitates is lost.” However, a successful earthwork contractor must do both simultaneously. They must avoid the hidden dangers that can lurk below ground at any job site. They must also

Adapting MRFs to Technology

Adapting MRFs to Technology

As technology and automation such as optical sorters, robotics, and controls play a greater role in modern MRFs, it calls for a different skill set in those who manage them and work with them.

A River Runs Through It

A River Runs Through It

Public agencies in California’s Los Angeles basin have been stepping up their game to limit what enters the street stormwater system to nothing more than water. This includes deployment of full- and partial-protection devices installed within curb inlets, catch basins, and the adjacent stormwater infrastructure to screen incoming water flow

Successful Water Leak Detection and Audit Methods

Successful Water Leak Detection and Audit Methods

Every drop of clean water is precious. Unfortunately, 30–50% of water is lost through aging infrastructure. And lost water equals lost revenue to the water service supplier. Water is lost through leaks and cracks in pipes and their fit­tings. Since most infrastructure is underground, it is virtually impossible to visually

Estimating Earthwork Volumes

Estimating Earthwork Volumes

Formulas and methods for determining the volumes and areas of regular shapes and surfaces go back at least as far as ancient Greece. Pythagoras and other mathematicians determined those formulas that are still used to calculate the volumes of spheres and pyramids, as well as the areas of curve conic
