Lot Protection for Home Building
ProWattle™ is installed around the perimeter of home construction sites to filter and slow sediment laden water and prevent movement of soil onto the streets and eventually offsite. ProWattle is “L” shaped with a rugged jacket. It resists the typical BMP abuse found in vertical home construction by flexing back and forth in traffic. Over 65 different trades and 250 individuals work to build a home. Materials and crews generate a lot of traffic across the stormwater BMPs. ProWattle stands up to this abuse and typically 80% can be moved to a future phase to be used again. Total cost to protect lots shrinks from reduced maintenance, material purchases and because ProWattle performs better, street sweeping is significantly reduced.
“ERTEC’s systems were challenged recently in downpours that temporarily closed the nearby DFW airport. Our site, which previously had been a challenge with difficult soils on multi-elevations was in great shape afterward. I was impressed with ERTEC’s performance while nearby sites using alternative technologies were faced with significant cleanup after the storm.” – Bill Arnold, Storm Water Inspector – History Maker Homes.
