Maine Drilling’s environmental commitment extends to all aspects of its daily activities.
We adhere to the IME (Institute of Makers of Explosives) Best Blasting Practices to safeguard the environment. These include specific recommendations for education and training of explosive users, selection of appropriate explosive for the job and conditions, explosives loading and handling, and attention to technical matters. In addition, our own supportive innovations and techniques add another layer of environmental care and attention.
Just one example of environmental best practices when it comes to loading bulk emulsion into bore holes is that we place bags over the hose ends whenever pumping operations are paused.
Environmental laws vary throughout New England, but one item remains the same: spills are not good! Whether it is fuel, oil, methanol or ANFO, we work to avoid spills and to promptly clean them up if they happen.
Housekeeping plays an important role in protecting the integrity of our environment.
Many jobs that we work on have environmental control plans and specific environmental rules.
Nation-wide erosion standards prohibit most contractors from having more than 5 acres of unprotected, open land. By delivering rock, the byproduct of our blasting, in a timely manner, in the location it's needed, Maine Drilling & Blasting's customers are able to stabilize areas quickly, thus providing some of the solution to the pollution issue of land erosion.Get a Free Quote Now
