We've all had reclamation or revegetation projects that have had issues. The plants don't seem to grow well and the soil washes away again. Rainwater sits on the surface and won't soak in, causing a muddy mess or stuck vehicles. Whatever issues you've run into, did you know that you could avoid them through soil testing? Here's a quick look at the PS3 soil test and how it can help ensure that your next project goes smoothly.
Erosion is a serious issue. It robs the soil of nutrients and causes it to detach and run off. It can clog waterways, killing aquatic life. As our society has become more strongly focused on sustainability, erosion has become a more important issue. One great option to consider when trying to control runoff and erosion in a new project or problem area is erosion control blankets. Available with a wide range of longevity, they provide a solid structure that limits erosion without a high cost or environmental impact. Here's a quick look at these materials, what applications they work well in and how to use them effectively.
Gabions and reno mattresses provide a rugged three-dimensional solution for some tough ground stabilization challenges. Essentially gabions and reno mattresses are wire baskets filled with sized rock. Both provide protection in many applications, including bridge scour, steep slope protection, channel lining and more.
When it comes to protecting the quality of our clean water supply, controlling soil erosion goes a long way. By preventing the buildup of silt and mud in our waterways, we're protecting marine wildlife habitat and lowering the load on groundwater filtration. At Team EJP, we're proud to partner with Presto Geosystems to provide erosion control and soil stabilization products that help our environment while providing a solid solution that will last for years to come. Here's a bit more information about these fabulous products:
Filtering water can make it look cleaner, taste cleaner and keep it safer for all who drink it or use it. While there are many different ways to clean water and make it safer, one of the most common and effective is filtration using a media-based filter. Whether you work with water filters on a regular basis, or you are considering switching to this style of filter, understanding how this process works and how to maintain these filters is key to success.
