Soil Permeability ReductionDust Control Inc, would like to propose to you a method, by which lower soil permeability or permeability reduction can be reached in accordance with environmental regulations where lower soil permeability is required, while at the same time accomplishing this task of permeability reduction as efficiently as possible. Our method is well tested and has been proven in many other similar situations where permeability reduction is required.
Our product Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) sits on the leading edge of technology for products specifically designed with dust control, road dust control, soil stabilization, erosion control and soil permeability enhancement as the end objective. For more information regarding Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) please visit our main product page.
Decreasing Soil PermeabilityThe task of decreasing soil permeability is not only a costly proposition but also a logistical challenge when the needed material is not readily available. Purchasing, excavating, transporting and placing material with a natural low permeability large percent of the cost of a permeability reduction project. Our program allows our customers to reduce the cost of the total project by reducing costs associated with the procurement of material with a lower soil permeability. The lower soil permeability and permeability reduction is defined by the required permeability coefficient (k) as directed by federal and state environmental protection agencies as well as resource management departments nationwide. This coefficient is a calculation based on a materials ability to restrict the movement of a liquid, in this case rain water, through a cross section of the boundary material. In most cases the lower soil permeability of a boundary material, must be equal to or less than 1 x 10-7 cm/sec. The challenge is then placed on the necessity to find a suitable material to use as a boundary that will meet these standardized regulations defining low soil permeability.
An alternative to Low Permeability SoilsThis is where our company is able to assist. Finding a suitable material for a soil permeability project is often difficult due to land population and usage. It can also be hindered by the fact that in many areas of the country suitable material is not readily available and must be hauled many miles. Locating and hauling a suitable material is becoming one of the largest cost factors for permeability projects. Dust Control Inc is able to assist in this process by allowing the customer to utilize what would be considered high permeability material while still meeting the requirements of lower soil permeability simply with our permeability reduction program.
We will happily take your soil sample in and conduct labratory test on the soil to determin the base permiability. From that point we will furthur test your soil using graduated applicaiton rates until the objective permiability has been reached. Once all testing is compleated we will issue a report of our findings to you and follow-up with a proposed plan of action.
The Testing Results from our soil Permeability Reduction ProductOnce your material arrives at the testing facility, a test sample is created in accordance with ASTM Section 5084, Flexible Wall Parameter, requirements. The sample is then treated with our soil enhancing permeability reduction product, Terra Seal Xtream (TSX)
, in accordance with our standard permeability application methods. Upon completion of the curing process the sample is tested for soil permeability in accordance to ASTM 5084.
One advantage to a Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) treated soil is that the material can be sourced from a local supplier. By using a local supplier you are keeping the cost of transportation down as well as keeping the money and the work local. Many times a project of this magnitude bypasses the local economy all together. This is not the case when Terra Seal Xtream (TSX) is the chosen method by which to enhance soil permeability .
In these economically challenging times, where the environment and the need for fiscal responsibility are at odds with each other, we at Dust Control Inc are here to help bring these projects in at a reasonable cost. We cannot overlook the need for success in our soil permeability projects while at the same time we must maintain fiscal responsibility. By utilizing tried and proven technologies to meet these needs we can provide a material that will meet your soil permeability needs while at the same time maintaining financial stability.
