SD1 Recognizes Contractors for Storm Water Management Efforts

12/11/2018 -

FORT WRIGHT, Ky.Sanitation District No. 1 (SD1) has presented the 2018 Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Excellence Award to three local construction companies for their proactive approach to addressing storm water challenges, timely implementation of best management practices (BMPs) and for ensuring their projects have minimal off-site impacts on our local environment.

The 13th annual awards recognize Farris Osborne (Advanced Enterprises, Inc.) for work on the Wolsing Woods Restoration Project; Tom Bowman (DRT Construction, Inc.) for work on the Audubon Forest Project; and Joshua Wagner (Al. Neyer, LLC) for work on the Erlanger Cinema Site Grading Project.

“Erosion and sediment control is a challenging task that requires constant attention,” said Jason Burlage, SD1’s plan review administrator. “But it is an essential element in protecting water quality and the landscape so current and future residents can thrive here for years to come. The businesses recognized with this award have demonstrated a commitment to this task by embracing BMP’s at their job sites.”

BMP’s are design, construction and maintenance practices that minimize the impact of storm water runoff by holding it in place, slowing it down and filtering it for pollutants. BMPs, such as silt fences and sediment basins, ensure that storm water runoff will not erode the soil and cause damage to property and the environment.
