Creating a viable plan for all of the potential storm water runoff is critical at any major construction site. While there are many options that can be used, the benefits of choosing cable concrete erosion control products stand out above the rest. But before you can choose a runoff system, it is important to first understand why having a plan is so important.
The importance of creating a storm water runoff plan at construction sites
As storm water travels, it picks up many objects such as debris, oil and pesticides that could be harmful for nearby wildlife. Storm water runoff occurs commonly at job sites in small amounts because of the nature of construction, and is amplified if the project is taking place during inclement weather conditions. If left unchecked, the storm water runoff from a job site can cause erosion and flooding, which could be detrimental to any habitats or bodies of water that may be in the area. The damage that this runoff can bring along with it could be so extreme that it could potentially slow down the progress of construction, and even one small delay could ripple and affect the entire project negatively.
In addition to protecting the work site and surrounding areas, on some sites it is mandatory that some type of storm water runoff plan be in place before a permit allowing construction to begin can be obtained. Permits are required for sites that are at least one acre or more in size and include clearing, grading or excavating activities. If you want to secure a permit for this type of site, you will have to address all of the potential pollution sources that are in play and have a system in place that truly addresses these issues completely. Cable concrete revetment mats might just be the all-encompassing solution you are looking for.
Cable concrete mats should be at the core of your plan
Because there is always a lot of activity at work sites, the storm runoff that comes from construction has the potential to erode sediment more quickly than normal. With cable concrete mats, your site will have a strong, uniform mat that can be used as a channel to divert storm water into specified waste areas, providing the ultimate protection for your work areas and the bodies of water nearby. This cable technology will always be working to protect shorelines and riverbanks, and will serve as the stabilization that both the environment and your construction site need.
