• Applications – Concrete Polishing


    The Issue:

    Job site scrutiny is ever increasing! The old days of letting slurry water run down the storm drain are gone, as it is now illegal under EPA guidelines in most states.


    The Consequences:

    Central Coast Homebuilder Ordered to Pay $58,500 For Dirty Job Site – “Residual concrete from a masonry and washout area had apparently overflowed and left the job site. Inadequate Best Management Practices for for the control of erosion and cleaning sediment were not in place or not effective.”


    Idaho Developers Fined for Storm Water Violations – July 16, 2008 Idaho - Operators at three construction sites in Nampa, Idaho just paida total of $21,800 to settle Clean Water Act (CWA) cases filed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Violations included failure to maintain erosion and sediment controls. According to Kim Ogle, Manager of EPA’s NPDES Compliance Unit, “While some Idaho builders and developers are doing a good job, there are others who are ignoring the storm water permit requirements,” said Ogle. “Builders and developers that fail to follow these permit conditions will face fines.”


    The Answer:

    Congelz is the simple answer to complying to EPA and local rules. Being EPA compliant has never been easier for concrete polishing slurry. Simply sprinkle Congelz on the slurry and watch the magic happen. In just 2-3 minutes the rinse water will become a safe to dispose solid that is easy to shovel up. Then just put the now solid slurry into a UV stable bag and place in any standard site dumpster or refuse container!
