Erosion Control Solutions For After Construction

During construction, areas around a pond or stormwater device can become disturbed by the machines working in the area. In this case, the backside of this pond dam was bare from being freshly graded to meet specifications. To prevent future erosion and to stabilize the area after the job was completed our client opted to sod the bare areas.

Fountain Diagnosis and Repair

Fountain running after repairs

We were contacted by a customer/HOA whose fountain had stopped working. They requested us to schedule a diagnostic check to determine the issue with the fountain not working.

During the fountain diagnostic visit, we determined that the motor had failed and would need to be replaced. We also checked the motor and light power cords for any potential issues due to their age. From the readings we took, we were able to determine that there was a leak to the ground issue. This means that there is an indication that a wire/wires are coming into direct contact with the water causing the GFCI breaker in the control panel to trip. This shuts off the power going to the motor/lights and stops the flow of electricity, preventing any possibility of electrical shock danger. Due to the age of the unit (approximately 10 years old), we found several electrical components had failed or were on the verge of failure.

Erosion Control

Aerial View

Erosion control is an important factor when working on active construction sites. Erosion can occur when soils are not stabilized or when they are disturbed through active construction. This can cause issues within the immediate area as well as downstream from the construction site. The methods to control and prevent erosion we utilized on this construction site included temporary erosion control fencing and installation of Bermuda sod once the work was completed.
