Sedimentation control is one of the most demanding requirements of construction. There are deadlines. There are design and engineering. There are long-term, very visible expectations. There are regulatory agency restrictions that don’t budge. The project must stand the test of time.
Carolina Environmental Contracting understands the critical timelines that commercial contractors face and responds quickly - most often within 48 hours. We are self-sufficient, experienced and knowledgeable, allowing contractors to focus on other aspects of the project. We do our job so you can do yours.
Foremen at Carolina Environmental Contracting are Level 1 and Level 2 Certified Erosion and Sediment Control/Stormwater Installers for the state of NC. Many of our supervisors are Level II Certified Erosion and Sediment Control/Stormwater Site Managers.
Once on site, Carolina Environmental Contracting carefully evaluates the construction project and makes qualified recommendations to the commercial contractor toward ensuring a successful completion of the total construction project. CEC has experience where it counts offering problem-solving techniques that are time-tested.
Carolina Environmental Contracting has the professional and proven resources to assist with your sediment control maintenance program.
Maintenance of BMP’s is a thorn in the side of most contractors. Once the initial installations are complete, the hard part begins to keep the devices in compliance with state and city regulations as the project moves forward.
Monroe Bypass Constructors hired Carolina Environmental to do the maintenance work for the temporary sediment control portion of their 23-mile project, the Monroe Bypass. CEC was onsite with one or two crews on a daily basis to keep the BMP’s in top performance. Silt fence, inlet protection, coir baffles in sediment basins, check dams, and outlets on sediment ponds all were monitored and tweaked weekly and after every rain. In addition, polyacrylamides must be applied to the wattles to coagulate the sediment in order for cleaner water to leave the project site.
Carolina Environmental Contracting (CEC) recently completed the design and construction of a BMP (Best Management Practices) site, built as a stormwater management solution to accommodate new construction at Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro, NC.
The additional building footprint and nonporous paving area required the installation of a 3,000 square-foot pond that forces stormwater to filter through vegetation, a specialty soil mix, sand, and stone before entering the stormwater piping system.
Construction site BMPs utilize different methods and materials on construction sites before and during the construction phase of the project to control stormwater discharge or pollutants commonly found in stormwater. The newly installed bioretention pond will serve as a permanent BMP that will continue to filter water after construction completion.
