When people think of construction, they get images of proud new buildings, the brand-new family home, or the site for the new office. Unfortunately, they also think of noise pollution, traffic congestion, inconvenience, and dust. Here in the Las Vegas valley, air quality is a hot-button issue. Construction dust has been targeted as a leading cause of air quality problems, and laws are in place to control dust, with companies and property owners facing fines and civil penalties for failure to comply with these laws. But you want to retain the natural look of the area. So where can you turn to control dust and still preserve the natural beauty of your desert landscaping?
The answer is SoilTech. We are the dust control company Las Vegas trusts to manage construction dust and desert restoration using environmentally friendly, water-saving techniques and practices. We start with soils analysis and an understanding of the overall goals of your project to help you choose the right dust mitigation options. If your project is envisioned to be long-term, such as a casino or large industrial development, we have soil-binding chemicals that are not only ecologically sound, but will alleviate the need to use precious water to keep dust down.
One such binding agent is called Plas-Tech. This material is not intended for high-use areas, such as roadways, but can be utilized to stabilize native soil while landscaping plants take root. With a projected lifespan of 1-2 years, Plas-Tech has been used successfully in projects such as the Blue Diamond Quarry, where it was implemented as part of an initiative to prevent fugitive dust from blowing over the mountain and into Southern Highlands. This innovative material helps absorb water to aid plant growth and deteriorates as the plants’ root systems develop, making Plas-Tech a wise choice for landscaping and desert restoration applications.
Whether your project is short-term construction or long-term restoration, in a natural setting or as part of a large development, don’t take chances with your dust control program. The fines and political hassles involved aren’t worth the headaches. Contact a company that specializes in the dust control Las Vegas contractors and developers rely on to stay compliant with the law and to understand what techniques are best and most cost-effective for you and the surrounding environment.
