The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently started to increase their crackdown on Clean Water Act (CWA) violations. Since the Clean Water Act was enacted in 1972, this law has had the greatest effect on municipalities (salt/sand storage), industrial facilities (mining/oil/gas) and composting operations. Most business owners in these sectors have had to invest in storage facilities and environmentally conscious products in order to follow the bylaws of the CWA. To understand what structural solutions business owners should be using for hazardous material storage, we first need to understand what the CWA entails. Continue reading

About three weeks ago, my manager asked if I would be willing to attend the Electric Power Conference & Exhibition in New Orleans and of course, I jumped at the chance. With the good food, warm weather and the opportunity to represent the company, who wouldn’t? Monday the 31st I boarded a flight to New Orleans at 8:30 a.m., and after an hour delay from the freak, end-of-March snow storm, we were heading south.

After all, they’re the ones making it possible!

Perhaps a better questions is how much business are they losing because they have no signage that makes them easily identifiable? For some, signage may not be an issue, but it does go a long way when it comes to brand recognition.
The winter season has already begun in several portions of the United States. But as Winter Storm Boreas embarks on the eastern sector of the country — in time for Thanksgiving travel — municipalities and landscaping businesses alike will be fueling up their fleet and stocking up on sand and salt to combat Jack Frost’s wrath on our neighborhood roads and interstates.
