Temporary Fill Options with emtek®

July 31, 2013

Temporary Fill options should be considered when crossing over environmentally sensitive areas. Stacking traditional wood mats or composite mats crushes root systems that can result in irreparable damage to wetlands. This method is obsolete and is no longer acceptable as a temporary fill solution. Go to the Wetlands Protection page to view the electrical transmission project site where stacking mats was employed in accessing the site a year ago and NEW SOUTH’s emtek® wetland access system was used this year. The difference is indisputable.
