NAPA OPERATIONAL EXCELLENCE AWARDS: ECOLOGICAL AWARD

FINALIST - EXISTING FACILITY
Barrett Paving Materials Inc.
Watertown, N.Y.

Lane Construction Corp.'s facility sits on the site of an old mine pit. The swales surrounding the site
are grassed to help prevent erosion.

ensures that the front-end loader's
distance between the stockpiles and
cold feed bins is minimized.
To further ensure efficient fuel
consumption, Lane performs yearly
tune-ups on the plant's burner
and oil heater. The company also
saves energy by using warm-mix
technology in its open grade
friction course interstate paving
projects. Further energy is saved
and exhaust emissions are reduced
by discouraging trucks from idling
at the plant; anti-idling signs are
clearly posted.
Lane recognizes that dust,
odor, and noise generated from
operations can be a nuisance. To
mitigate these issues, the company
has Good Neighbor and Preventing
Nuisance policies. Employees
are trained on these policies so
they can make every effort to
reduce any negative impact on the
surrounding community.

The facility is located in a
highly industrialized area. To
strengthen its relationship with
neighbors, Lane makes a point
of contracting with neighboring
businesses whenever possible,
buying and renting equipment
or parts from them, and using
another neighbor's services to pick
up solid waste and recycling.
Lane employees are also
encouraged to participate in
community events that are
meaningful to them. A Service
Committee meets throughout
the year to select possible
volunteer opportunities. The
company has worked on the
revitalization of Palmetto Park,
building a basketball court at a
local elementary school, Special
Olympics, Adopt-a-Highway,
donating asphalt for a local
church's handicap ramps, and
sponsoring a local children's home.

Barrett Paving Materials has pride
in its plant site, says Plant Manager
Scott Lockerbie. "Our goal is a clean,
safe job site," Lockerbie explained.
Operations at the six-year old,
400 ton-per-hour drum plant ensure
the plant is attractive and clean, and
follow a variety of energy saving and
wastewater management practices.
Barrett Paving Materials uses
warm-mix asphalt foaming
technology, which helps lower the
temperature and British thermal
units (Btu) needed to produce
high-quality asphalt mixtures. The
company also uses best practices
for stockpile management to lower
the Btu associated with drying
reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP).
The RAP is only processed as it is
needed. This decision ensures that
processed RAP does not have more
surface area to absorb moisture,
which requires additional energy to
dry the RAP. These energy saving
management strategies have helped
make the Watertown Plant stand
out as one of the company's most
energy-efficient plants, based on Btu
per ton of asphalt mix.
Stormwater management
best practices are also followed.
Barrett Paving Materials follows its
Stormwater Pollution Prevention
Plan to ensure that waste water is
responsibly managed.
The entire plant and truck exit
route is paved. The pavement helps
keep the plant site clean, and the
landscaping and regular painting of
the plant's two 200-ton silos help
prevent the plant being an eyesore
to the community.
In addition to maintaining a
clean, attractive plant site, Barrett
Paving Materials makes a point
to be a good neighbor. Whenever
the Watertown Plant has an open
house or other event, neighbors
