Chaparral Construction Reclamation
Reducing the Impact on the Environment
Chaparral Construction is committed to making every effort to reduce the impact upon the environment made by heavy equipment, whether it be extensive, meticulous cleanup
on our own work sites, or reclamation of work sites for other companies. We strive to integrate the newest technologies in the construction equipment industry.
Chaparral Construction LLC recognizes the importance of limiting the spread of aquatic nuisance species (ANS) and noxious weeds. Our work with the USFS and the Coalition of the
Upper South Platte requires following rigorous protocols to assure that equipment is clean and free of undesirable organisms before each project and following construction.
Chaparral was one of the first companies in Colorado to adopt ANS decontamination protocols as a necessary part of river restoration, beginning with the first Trees for Trout projects
in Eleven Mile Canyon along the South Platte River in 2006.
The John Deere 290GLC, 160G, 2154G, and Hitachi 245 all have biodegradable hydraulic fluids. This enables us to limit contamination to the aquatic habitat. Should a spill occur, every
effort is made to minimize the damage. A 30 gallon spill kit is always on site.
