Construction

Erosion controls that aren’t maintained can cause excessive amounts of sediment and debris to be carried into the stormwater system. Stormwater can be diverted away from the construction site, while silt fences and other erosion controls can be put in place to minimize the amount of sediment that gets into the water. Also, soil erosion can be prevented by minimizing the disturbed area during construction projects, and by placing seed and mulch on bare areas as early as possible.  ErosionControlImage
 oil-leak Construction vehicles can leak fuel, oil and other harmful fluids that can be picked up by stormwater and deposited into local waterbodies. Make sure to clean up spills immediately and properly dispose of cleanup materials.

 

The EPA has a wonderful poster available that outlines best management practices that you can implement on your next construction project.
