Conservation plays a key roll in creating a better future for our friends and loved ones. That is why here at Leon Ray Martin Excavating we take Conservation efforts very seriously. We have performed work for many Conservation Districts in Pennsylvania, implementing BMP features and providing insight for landowner's who wish to undergo projects such as reducing erosion and runoff, or create a more sustainable stream crossing, and also achieve financial assistance for the project.
Examples of Suggested Improvements:

Stream Crossing Installations often are a huge benefit to the landowner as well as a great conservation effort. They can make a wetland or stream passable which was not before, while reducing stream contamination by providing a solid traffic surface. The design allows for water to flow under the traffic area, keeping the vehicle out of the mud, reducing soil disturbance. Check with us today about funding options for your stream crossing.
Gradient Terraces, Pipe Terraces, and Waterways all have the same objective: To collect large areas of runoff that may be causing erosion, and redirect storm water to a controlled, stable, and appropriately sized discharge. Often times the discharge consists of a Rip Rap Apron, which is an area of large stone that slows the runoff at a termination point. In Pipe Terrace applications, the water is directed to a pipe which will transfer the water underground to a suitable discharge location.
