According to a report by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), sediment is a leading cause of water pollution, contributing to cloudy water, decreased oxygen levels, and harm to aquatic life. Proper basin and pond maintenance is essential to prevent sediment buildup and ensure the safe removal of pollutants like hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and debris.

Our team of experts specializes in comprehensive basin and pond maintenance services, including sediment removal, erosion control, and water quality management. We utilize proven techniques and state-of-the-art equipment to ensure your stormwater systems function efficiently and effectively.

Basin Cleanup

At Eastcoast Site Work, we understand the importance of proper erosion control and the impact it can have on your property. Litter, debris, and other pollutants can obstruct drainage basins and detention ponds, impeding the flow of stormwater runoff from the surrounding area. To ensure optimal functionality, these basins must be diligently maintained and cleared.

As a leading provider of pond preparation solutions, Eastcoast Site Work specializes in the installation and upkeep of basins for construction sites, subdivisions, and commercial properties. Our services cater to both residential and commercial land uses, addressing the unique challenges posed by each.

For residential properties, our team focuses on mitigating sediment buildup and excessive nutrients from fertilizers, leaves, and grass clippings common in fish ponds. Our pond water management techniques ensure a healthy environment for pond fish while maintaining the aesthetic appeal of your landscape.

In commercial and highway development, Eastcoast Site Work tackles the influx of hydrocarbons and heavy metals from vehicles, as well as litter and debris. Our fish pond preparation services prioritize the safety and well-being of aquatic life, utilizing top-quality fish food and maintaining ideal water conditions.

Introduction of Sediment

The greatest water pollution threat from soil-disturbing activities is the introduction of sediment from the construction site into storm drain systems or natural receiving waters. Soil-disturbing activities such as clearing, grubbing, and earthwork increase the exposure of soils to wind, rain, and concentrated flows that cause erosion. A three-pronged approach is necessary to combat this storm water threat:

  • Temporary soil stabilization practices reduce erosion associated with disturbed soil areas (DSAs).
  • Temporary run-on control practices prevent storm water flows (sheet and concentrated) from contacting DSAs.
  • Temporary sediment control practices reduce sediment caused by erosion from entering a storm drain system or receiving water.

Sediment/Desilting Basin Description and Purpose

A sediment/desilting basin is a temporary basin formed by excavation and/or by constructing an embankment so that sediment-laden runoff is temporarily detained under quiescent conditions (a state of quietness or inactivity), allowing sediment to settle out before the runoff is discharged.

Its purpose is to collect and store sediment from sites cleared and/or graded during construction or for extended periods of time before reestablishment of permanent vegetation and/or construction of permanent drainage structures. The basin is a temporary measure with a design life of 12 to 18 months and is to be maintained until the site area is permanently protected against erosion or a permanent detention basin is constructed.

Sedimentation basins are suitable for nearly all types of construction projects. Whenever possible, construct the sediment/desilting basins before clearing and grading work begins. Basins should be located at the storm water outlet from the site but not in any natural or undisturbed stream. A typical application would include temporary dikes, pipes, and/or channels to divert runoff to the basin inlet.

Rip Rap Replacement

Riprap, also known as rip rap, rip-rap, shot rock, rock armor, or rubble, is man-placed rock or other material used to armor shorelines, streambeds, bridge abutments, pilings and other shoreline structures against scour and water, wave, or ice erosion. Common rock types used include granite and modular concrete blocks. Rubble from building and paving demolition is sometimes used.
