Close Call Cut in Half

While driving pile, one hit a soft pocket and the pile “ran” 20 feet or so. The hammer came down, nothing there to hit, cable holding the pile driving hammer broke, the hammer fell, hit an excavator boom, bounced off and hit the boat.

The pile buck in the boat, having quick reflexes and a clean change of boxers, jumped into the bay just in time; no one hurt.

Protecting a Trench Drain, Part 2

?

My post yesterday, Protecting a Trench Drain talked about the difficulty of protecting trench drains. This is what can happen if you don’t protect them. These photos show sheen from oil and grease generated by construction activities around the slot drain during a rainstorm.

Protecting a trench drain is difficult. I don’t think anyone makes a catch basin insert for them. I sometimes have to plug them or weld plate over them to keep sediment out.

Portable Spill Kit

It’s always a good idea to have a bunch of portable spill kits on the job. Put one in the cab of each piece of equipment for quick response when hydraulic hoses break.

Construction Access with Steel Plates

We built a construction access with steel plates across this stormwater swale. Then we laid compost socks and straw wattles along side of the eco blocks placed along the edges.

The adjacent parking lot drains into the swale and must be protected from dirty construction stormwater discharges.

This vacuum sweeper blows…dust. The driver is not using water spray nozzles for some reason.

Diesel Exhaust Fluid

Diesel exhaust fluid is an additive that reduces nitrogen oxide pollution. While this is a good thing, it still needs to be in secondary containment while on the job site.

Silt Fence, Covered Stockpile

I saw this driving by a new apartment building project.  Everything is so tidy.   They attached the silt fence to the cyclone fence and  secured the black plastic from damaging wind.
