Mitigating Ecological Effects by Frank Owens Contractors Review



Mitigating Ecological Effects due to Construction Works


There are effective ways of addressing the negative effects of construction works, particularly site clearing or ground work operations which tend to disrupt or damage the ecological balance of specific locales, such as forested areas, agricultural lands, estuarial areas, waterways and shorelines. Frank Owens possesses the technical and managerial capability to implement safeguards against unduly impacting the environment. Here are some suggested steps:



Having a highly-competent ecologist who understands the various processes involved in preserving the habitats of flora and fauna can provide the proper measures and solutions for environmental protection.


  • Minimize possible uncontrolled inflow into drainage ways and streams


The need to limit the flow of water runoff from bare or un-vegetated areas requires prior covering, seeding or planting of grass or shrubs. This obviously entails some expense; however, the precaution, which may often be required by law, will redound to future benefits in terms of mitigating flooding and destruction of existing natural and human-made structures.


  • Material stockpiles must be located and monitored properly


The size, the location and the prevention of leakage or movement of materials stored or kept on the site must be closely monitored to minimize environmental impact.


  • Construction area is limited to achieve preservation of vegetation


The boundaries of the construction works must be controlled to minimize removal of vegetation and the exposure and/or compaction of soils. Fences must also be put up to prevent negligent intrusion by workers or equipment beyond the limits set.
