Stacking Mats can cause irreparable damage in a wetland. They can create canals, increase potential for flooding, and can easily damage a wildlife habitat. This can result in fines and penalties from regulatory agencies, and can diminish the company’s public image.

Section 404 of the Clean Water Act states that “no discharge or dredge or fill material may be permitted if a practicable alternative exists that is less damaging to the aquatic environment and our nation’s waters, including wetlands”. The emtek® Wetland Access System floats on vegetative wetlands. Experienced NEW SOUTH crews provide expertise in installing this system to protect wetlands and BMPs for other sensitive site conditions.
