Calgary Environmental Services

Prime Land Services specializes in the practice of preventing wind or water erosion for agriculture, construction, and land developments. Effective erosion control is an important technique in preventing water pollution and soil loss. Prime offers a variety of non-impact solutions to erosion, sediment control and dewatering services.

Prime has been certified through the City of Calgary in many areas of Erosion and Sediment control including biotechnical soil stabilization for slopes and stream banks, implementation inspection, maintenance of construction site best practices, and several other methods involving erosion and sediment control. Their CPESC certification(Certified Professional in Erosion and Sediment Control) has allowed them to gain a greater knowledge of the Erosion and Sediment Control Industry.

siltfence

Silt Fence

A temporary sediment control consisting of a geo-textile material which is placed around the perimeter of a construction site where soil disturbance is occurring. There by preventing streams, rivers, lakes and reservoirs from potential sediment contamination.

erosionblanket

Erosion Blanket

A temporary erosion control device consisting of a straw and coconut compound. The matting is laid on a slope and stapled into place. By retaining moisture, it controls runoff and promotes the early germination of seeds. Over time the erosion blanket decomposes into natural mulch and blends in with the natural environment

biologs

Bio Logs

An erosion control and sediment control device used on construction sites to protect water quality and contamination to surrounding areas. Bio logs are made of 100% coconut fiber and are completely bio-degradable. Over time bio logs with blend in with the natural surroundings.

basinprotection

Catch Basin Protection

Helps to prevent any potential sediment discharge into storm drains and sewage systems, ensuring companies can comply with their local storm water pollution prevention plans.

turbiditycurtains

Turbidity Curtains

Floating sediment barriers that can reduce or restrict the movement of suspended sediments and hazardous materials into bodies of water.

poleplanting

Pole Planting and Brush Layering

A method of using natural vegetation to provide soil stabilization.

slitdike

Silt Dikes

Used to slow or stop the flow of runoff water. These dikes are also effective in preventing erosion and sediment transfer.

turf

Turf Reinforcement Mats

Synthetic fiber erosion control blankets that offer permanent support for vegetation. This prevents erosion from high drainage areas such as swales and slopes.

slitbag

Silt Bags

Designed to filter out sediment from water being extracted from construction sites. This increases water quality and protects the environment from large amounts of silt laden water.

ecoplans

Eco Plans

Prime works directly with companies to create effective eco plans to greatly reduce all of the environmental impacts of construction.

ecoplans

Dewatering

A system Designed to lower NTU’s (Nephelometric Turbidity Units) in water to an Allowable level that passes City requirements to be pumped into the Storm system.
