The wind industry provides one of the most environmentally friendly sources of energy we have to-date, but often comes along with more land disturbance than any other natural resource extraction job. In large-scale wind farms, hundreds of acres of land need to be torn up in order to install these massive turbines, which can affect vegetation around the area. The team at Duraroot is in favor of the extraction of natural resources, but we also don’t want to see our natural landscapes suffer. Because of this, we offer our premier land reclamation and remediation services to the wind industry.
Pad Reclamation in the Wind Industry
The most effective way to restore stability to a land area is to properly assess soil in that region. Our scientists set out to properly fertilize and amend the soil so they can increase plant germination, establishment and growth. Obtaining a sense of the soil properties at your wind farm will speed up the reclamation process and close your permit sooner. Properly fertilizing the area will also decrease the number of weeds surrounding your turbines.
Stormwater Management in the Extraction of Natural Resources
We must pay attention to stormwater compliance in any construction job we undertake, no matter the size or location. States don’t want sediment from a disturbed site entering their water source. Our team manages stormwater compliance in a variety of methods that increase site stabilization and reduce erosion. They lead to successful vegetation establishment, proper implementation of erosion control devices, or ECDs, and site-specific project design.
Oil and Gas Industry Landowner Negotiations
Soil is the foundation of our business and we have experience with a number of agricultural issues, but we also want to hear your input. Our scientists form relationships with landowners of the sites on which we work. We adopt a scientific approach to their concerns during construction and reclamation to ensure we address their needs in a manner that is scientifically plausible. Our ability to communicate with land owners helps our clients improve their social license with these important stakeholders.
