Carolina Environmental Contracting restores streams, creeks and wetlands threatened by commercial construction. CEC's professional and dedicated team rebuilds waterways, channels and wetlands in order to protect natural resources, improve water quality, support aquatic and wildlife habitats, aid in controlling floodwaters and pollution runoff, and minimize erosion.
For nearly a quarter of a century, Carolina Environmental has provided the construction expertise to complete projects that meet or exceed strict government standards.
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.
