A Final Inspection

I am conducting a final inspection of erosion controls at a former staging area. Some of the best management practices shown are: silt fence, straw wattles, and hydroseed.

What’s Wrong with this Photo?

What’s wrong with this photo? On first glance, it looks like a peaceful pathway across a stormwater swale. In reality, it is two compost socks that need to be overlapped and one burlap silt fence that needs maintenance.

Watch the River Flow

Had to get out of the house, I was going crazy. So, I drove up to the Staircase campground to watch the river flow.

Blowin’ in the Wind

Blowin’ in the wind is what happens to your plastic stockpile cover when you don’t use enough sand bags. The contractor has been pulling material from the pile daily and hasn’t been using enough sand bags on the overlapped seams.

Large Containment, Small Container

Such a large containment for such a small container. Let’s see, one quart is 32 ounces. The containment needs to hold 110% of the largest container. So, the containment for a quart of oil needs to contain 32 plus 10%, or 3.2 ounces, which equals 35.2 ounces total containment. I think a small trash can would be big enough.

This silt fence looks pretty ugly and inspection shows it certainly needs maintenance; but does it? The silt fence made sense before we excavated several feet, now it doesn’t. There is a turbidity curtain in the river to the right and the contractor is careful to pull material back from the riverbank. I am going to let this go.
