Planning Ahead

Planning ahead requires a different mindset to prevent problems rather than react when they happen.

On this project we are using the neighboring property for staging; all of the runoff drains into their constructed stormwater treatment swale.

Their stormwater discharges are regulated and any non-compliance issues could be attributed to the contractor’s use of this area.

Where’s the Rock Entrance?

Where’s the rock entrance? I am just glad it’s not my project. This is a small staging area for a bike path extension next to a creek. All dirty runoff ends up in the creek. There used to be a rock entrance, but with mud being tracked over it, it has disappeared. With a small staging area and rainy season work next to a creek, I would have specified that the entire staging area be covered with Asphalt Treated Base (ATB), to be removed and recycled at the end of the job. I have done this on several staging areas of up to about two acres. This can end up being much less expensive than managing tire washes and sweepers.
