Shorelines are a crucial part of our environment for a variety of reasons. They provide a habitat for fish and other wildlife, and they also take care of stormwater runoff before it affects our water supply. Unfortunately, erosion is a natural occurrence that can damage our shorelines. It can happen on any body of water including lakes, streams, oceans, and rivers. If erosion isn’t taken care of properly it can eventually harm our water supply, and ecosystem, and cause property loss. Let’s take a look at some techniques to manage erosion before it becomes too big of a problem.
If you own land that has a substantial amount of soil, there’s a good chance you might need to have a perc test done at some point. For those of you who might not be familiar with this term, your friends at Delta Aggregate have taken the time to make a brief know-how guide to fill you in on all of the important details.
Erosion can happen to any shoreline or area exposed to flowing water. The concentrated flow of water and the energy of waves can cause significant damage in a rather quick period of time. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent erosion, even along shorelines that are exposed to strong waves and water flow. One of these erosion-prevention techniques is the use of riprap.
Riprap is a manmade structure that’s built with piled-up rocks used as a lining or a retaining wall. This wall prevents the land from eroding due to the moving water. The stones used to form rip raps are extremely durable and can be used in many different ways. Since the stone is so versatile, determining the size you need may be a bit challenging. Here is a guide that will help you better understand rip rap stone sizing.
When you think of aggregates, your first thoughts might drift to statistical or mathematical equations, but the aggregates we’re going to be discussing are rocks. We know that discussing aggregates (rocks) might not be the most exciting topic, but it is essential to learn more about aggregates, especially if you’re involved in the construction industry.
Every day more and more people learn about protecting the environment and taking action towards helping protect the environment. This includes congress having developed Florida’s Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) process. But this process cannot be carried out without adequate screening. This is where FDOT screenings by Delta Aggregate come into play.
Delta Aggregate wants to take a moment to remind you of the many ways you benefit from utilizing our property protection services. We specialize in using the highest quality rock materials to protect everything from shorelines to residential homes. Our base of operations is Immokalee, Florida, and there is no project that is too big or too small for us.
So, what does Delta Aggregate do?
If you’ve been walking along the seashore, you might have noticed some of the impressive rock formations that are created by the natural process of erosion. Perhaps you’ve seen man-made rock formations that contain just as much beauty. And finally, you notice the grains of sand and pebbles that have found their way into your footwear. While that last one can be somewhat of an inconvenience, the formations you’re in awe of can be appropriated into landscaping designs to elevate the aesthetic of your home.
