Can Cause Costly Delays
Keeping the dust down on access roads using water means incurring plenty of additional costs: extra labor, fuel, supplies, equipment repairs and, of course, water.
But those aren’t the only costs associated with road maintenance. You’ll also be responsible for keeping the road in working order, which means importing extra aggregate, grading, compacting, road closures and plenty of delays. You’ll also experience slower transport routes (when they’re not shut down for maintenance), more labor costs, decreased fuel economy, costly equipment maintenance and repairs as well as increased safety concerns for your employees.
