Dandy Supports You and the Environment
One of the greatest environmental concerns we face today is soil erosion. It reduces the amount of viable cropland, pollutes waterways, destroys habitats and alters ecosystems. There’s no doubt that new construction contributes to the widespread issue of soil erosion, but Dandy can help you stay compliant and protect the environment with erosion control best management practices.

Sediment and Erosion Control Best Practices
When land and roads are torn up for new construction, sediment is unearthed and carried away in stormwater — causing soil erosion and putting waterways and public water systems at risk for contamination.
To protect water, soil, wildlife and natural habitats, regulations pertaining to sediment and erosion control have been in place in the U.S. since the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced the Clean Water Act (CWA) in 1972.
Since then, regulations have grown extensively, as have fines for noncompliance. Among other things, contractors are required to use professional-grade inlet filters and erect their own sediment control solutions whenever they start a new project. That’s where Dandy comes in…
Soil is being swept and washed away 10 to 40 times faster than it is being replenished.
