SD1 recognizes four local construction companies for minimizing impact on environment

Sanitation District No. 1 (SD1) has presented the 2021 Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control Excellence Award to four local construction companies for their proactive approach to addressing stormwater challenges, timely implementation of best management practices (BMPs) and for ensuring their projects have minimal off-site impacts on our local environment.

The 16th annual awards recognize Sean O’Mara (Al. Neyer) and Kevin Standring (The Nelson Stark Company) for work on the Runway Logistics project in Boone County; Ben Clough (Fischer Homes Inc.) for work on the Meadow Glen Subdivision project in Independence; and Steve Liggett (Taylor Brothers Inc.) for work on the Sherbourne Subdivision project in Erlanger.

“Erosion and sediment control requires constant attention,” said Jason Burlage, SD1’s plan review administrator. “This is an essential element in protecting water quality and the landscape to protect local residents. Al. Neyer, The Nelson Stark Company, Fischer Homes Inc., and Taylor Brothers Inc. have all demonstrated a commitment to this work by embracing BMPs at their job sites.”

BMPs are design, construction, and maintenance practices that minimize the impact of stormwater runoff by holding it in place, slowing it down, and filtering it for pollutants. BMPs such as silt fences and sediment basins ensure that stormwater runoff will not erode the soil and cause damage to property and the environment.
