Pipeline Restoration Project Protects Native Plants and Animals, Weather or Not!
R-Value Foam’s custom tracked equipment puts restoration hydro-seeding products where they need to be to protect the environment, regardless of weather and ground conditions
“We used a combination of techniques. Our tracked equipment delivered hydro-seed up at a distance of up to 1,000 feet from a single location.“
R-Value Foam has announced completion of a New Jersey pipeline project that included the restoration of sensitive wetland areas critical to protecting native plant and animal species. The company utilized its proprietary tracked equipment and process to install foam trench pads and breakers along the pipeline right-of-way with a hydro-seeded bonded fiber matrix to provide critical groundcover.
R-Value’s president, Mark Benaske said: “We used a combination of techniques. Our tracked equipment delivered hydro-seed up at a distance of up to 1,000 feet from a single location, at a rate of up to 3,000 feet per day. But we use straw blowers to hand seed in the most sensitive areas to insure there’s no contamination of wetlands. It’s a matter of doing what it takes to get the job done, while protecting the environment.
”The company notes that the New Jersey project required the installation of foam pads every 10 to 12 feet of the pipeline installation though wetlands and stream crossings. Benaske concluded, “This project required pads and breakers up to 10 feet in width in extremely rocky terrain. We redesigned our spray guns to spray our material at long lengths, so we could stay out of the ditch. This allowed us to complete the project safely and on time.
