Tip Your Hardhat to the Florida Department of Transportation

With the state getting serious about Stormwater Management, the Florida DOT is hosting an Environmental Expo to create awareness and help keep construction sites in compliance.

The Florida Department of Transportation will be hosting the first ever Construction Environmental Exposition on April 20th in Gainesville, FL and Granite Environmental will be there.

They will be joining other contractors, designers, consultants, County Road Departments, Water Management Districts, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Army Corp, and others at the Gainesville Operation Center to share information and collaborate on the best management practices for Stormwater Management on FDOT construction projects.

Why is this Inaugural Expo so important? Florida DOT Representative Emy Delgado points out that it is consistent with Department's environmental policy "to help preserve and enhance Florida's natural, physical, cultural, and social environment as we develop, implement and maintain transportation facilities and services."

What does construction have to do with the environment? Delgado goes on to say that "effective control of erosion and sedimentation on a construction site depends upon the proper selection and use of a number of best management practices (i.e. construction road stabilization, sediment traps, sediment basins, turbidity barriers, storm inlet protection, slope drains, pollution source controls, dewatering techniques, etc.) The Expo will be a great opportunity for all parties to preview some of the new products and environmental technologies for 2011."

How does Granite Environmental fit in? This local Sebastian, Florida company specializes in site specific product solutions for a cleaner world. They offer a complete line of Stormwater and Construction BMPs to help keep clients' sites in compliance, avoiding fines and shut downs. With seven in-house Florida Stormwater and Sedimentation Control Inspectors, Granite Environmental also provides expert knowledge, insight, and regulatory standards to their clients.

Come visit Granite Environmental and others at this ground-breaking expo! Delgado states it perfectly; "We hope that all parties are able to take advantage of this unique opportunity to see how each of us fit into the Environmental Big Picture."

The Environmental Exposition is scheduled for April 20th from 9 am to 4 pm. It will be held outdoors at the Gainesville Operations Center located at 5301 NE 39th Ave, Gainesville, FL 32609.
