It seems that every time I turn on the TV or read the newspaper, I’m seeing or reading about cannabis—or as it is commonly known, marijuana. As more states vote to make cannabis legal, I believe it leaves a lot of questions that need to be answered for business people....

As the EPA took on a larger role, and Phase II of the NPDES took over, builders of roads, highways and buildings had to follow certain guidelines in order to be in compliance. The EPA began enforcing the requirements to control dust and topsoil from leaving construction sites, as well as the rules of municipal and industrial wastewater discharge....

It seems to have started off with a bang—rain in the Midwest and Southeast, late snow and rain in the East, and in the West, plenty of snow and rain. Although Southern California did not receive the rain ‘punch’ expected from El Nino, it did produce a fair amount of moisture for Northern California....

"We’re excited to announce that  we’re breaking ground tomorrow on our brand-new (fill in the blank) development.” How many times have you heard that phrase? It points up the fact that construction of anything almost always involves ‘breaking ground,’ i....

I don’t know if it’s my imagination or what, but it appears as though I’m receiving more communications from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) these days. What’s interesting is that the EPA seems to be coming down hard on violators of the Clean Water Act and the NPDES regulations....

Agapanthus has its defenders, as well. It is a long-lived plant that tolerates hot or cold temperatures, wet or drought conditions, wind, salt, poor soils, moderate-shade, heavy damage and sea immersion of root stalks and seeds. The roots are actually strong enough to keep soil and clay banks together during heavy rainfall....

There seems to be some good vibes in the air; however, I can’t quite put my finger on it. Ever since attending the IECA conference and trade show, I’ve had this feeling that the erosion and stormwater control markets are about to move up a few notches....

In many ways, we are fortunate that, in our chosen profession, we are able to help people when certain disasters occur: the tornadoes in Missouri, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Georgia, the flooding in Louisiana, the snows in the northeastern part of the country, the rain in California, and the snow in Colorado....
