The Benefits of Engineered Soils

The Benefits of Engineered Soils

Engineered soil: it sounds like a new concept, but one historical record notes it is more than 1,000 years old. In the sixth century AD, a group of ascetic monks left the lush, green mainland of Ireland seeking a new, remote environment to practice their dedication and humility. Braving the

Pipeline Reclamation: A Growing Field

Pipeline Reclamation: A Growing Field

Increasing miles of pipeline are being built to transport oil and natural gas across the US. More miles of pipeline equals a larger need for reclamation of those rights of way (ROWs) that have been affected by the excavation. Many companies entering the reclamation field or contracting such services have

Battling Invasive Species

Battling Invasive Species

When William Shakespeare introduced the starling into his play Henry IV more than 400 years ago, he recognized the bird’s moderately annoying qualities by imagining it tormenting its host with the repetition of a single utterance—over and over and over. However, he certainly could have had no concept that his

Hydroseeding—Going Green Fast

Hydroseeding—Going Green Fast

The job specifications called for rolled erosion control products. But there had been lots of rain, with more forecast. The predicted weather allowed only one day for doing the job. And at the bottom of the steep slope was a creek. Any sediment that got into that creek would pollute

Accelerated soil loss resulting from human activities has always captivated Whittingham’s interest. Growing up in Colorado Springs, CO, during the 1960s and 1970s, Whittingham was often found hiking through deep ravines caused by construction-site

Protecting Storm Drains and Inlets From Sediment and Pollutants

Protecting Storm Drains and Inlets From Sediment and Pollutants

The trouble with stormwater runoff is that it travels along the ground surface and over pavement, picking up sediment and other contaminants as it goes. A well-designed surface water runoff collection and drainage system will funnel runoff from relatively large areas into individual collection points such as inlets and drains
