A 10 yard drop box is equal to approximately three (3) standard pickup trucks filled level across the top of the bed.
Bioswales channel stormwater into a trough filled with vegetation, compost or mulch, and rubble to reduce runoff, increase infiltration, and remove pollutants. Bioswales are often positioned alongside roads and parking lots to capture runoff. Bioswales often cost less than traditional curb and gutter systems, though their efficacy is dependent on proper siting, design, and construction, as well as continued maintenance. Vegetation used in bioswales should be flood tolerant, erosion resistant, salt tolerant, and native when possible. Bioswales can be used in combination with other stormwater best management practices to manage high stormwater flows.
Regular maintenance is required to ensure continued effectiveness and system longevity, including regular mowing and reseeding, as well as inspections for erosion, weed control, and trash removal. Proper snow and sand removal are necessary to ensure that bioswales continue functioning after winters in cold areas.
Uses natural processes to reduce stormwater runoff volume, rate, and pollutants and increase soil and groundwater infiltration
Green spaces can improve urban air quality, contribute to lower urban air temperatures, and be aesthetically pleasing
Can be easily retrofitted during any landscape modification or parking lot/street resurfacing
Construction and maintenance costs of bioswales are often lower than those of conventional stormwater management systems

CATCH BASIN CLEANING
To keep your lot safe from injuries, flooding and mosquito breeding throughout the year, it's recommended to clean your catch basins every six months. After a long winter, there's plenty of debris built up to clean out, so your parking area is ready for the spring and summer months. Before winter sets in, it's good to clean out the leaves, trash and debris from summer and fall.
You'll avoid flooding and prevent drainage line backup if you keep your catch basins serviced. Getting rid of standing water in the basin improves vector control and reduces mosquito breeding. Contact us for service and your lot will be safer year 'round.

EMERGENCY SEWER BYPASS
Emergency bypasses are necessitated by unforeseen equipment breakdowns and the consequence is a backup in sewage resulting in overflows, spills, environmental damage and fines. In dealing with these catastrophes, speed is of the essence and River City Environmental has dedicated numerous resources to this end.
River City Environmental has the staff, tools and equipment necessary to get manpower and equipment to the scene of an emergency sewage bypass before anyone else. Depending upon the scope of the problem, we can provide technicians, laborers, supervision, pumps, valves, pipe, hose fittings and the equipment needed to put it all together. Our Bypass Trailer is outfitted with equipment and stocked with all the fittings needed to get a complicated bypass up and running in no time.
SEWER BYPASS PLAN
The ideal way to prepare for an emergency sewage bypass is to have a service plan in place ahead of time. River City Environmental offers a service to provide a complete written Emergency Sewage Bypass Plan to help you prepare. Our staff will evaluate your pump stations, review the access, flows and other logistical issues and write up a plan of action with a detailed list of the equipment required in the event of a breakdown.
We will also recommend any infrastructure improvements that may be needed to facilitate a temporary pumping system. Copies of the plan will be maintained at the facilities of both our customer and Pumping Services, and it can be mobilized in the event of an emergency.
When it comes to Emergency Sewage Bypass, think local. As a local company, we can mobilize quicker, get onsite faster, and have you back on line more rapidly than any other sewer bypass or dewatering company.
