Extruded Asphalt Curbing as a Best Management Practice (BMP)

Filed under: Photo — Sheetflow @ 7:00 am

Here is an an example of extruded asphalt curbing being used as a barrier to keep storm water out of the construction area, on the left, and keep site water from flowing outside the project, to the right. In this case, the non-project water is dirtier because the paving is broken up and equipment is driving through muddy areas. The object of the construction project is to grind existing, poor, asphalt, rebuild the base using the ground asphalt, then lay new asphalt over the top. This is being done in phases to keep from opening up too much area as this work is being done in winter.

The large bung plug was not replaced and rain was allowed into the drum, displacing the chemical inside. The quantity of product that escaped onto the ground was only about 10 to 15 gallons, but since this occurred over a period of several weeks, the surrounding soil was contaminated. The total cost of the cleanup was just under $900 dollars. This could easily have been prevented with regular inspections.

Check Dam Installation Example

Filed under: Photo,Video — Sheetflow @ 7:04 am

Check dams need to be installed so that the center point of the dam is at least 8 inches lower than the outside edges; 12 inches in areas where intense rainfall occurs. If the center point is higher than the outer edges, water will run around the dam and erode the side slopes of the ditch, causing erosion. See Video.
