Getting it back.

Nelson Rotator® and Big Gun® sprinklers efficiently help reestablish vegetation for industrial, mining, and landfill reclamation.

Revegetating can create riparian buffer strips, prevent erosion, and stabilize slopes on reclaimed lands. Crucially, revegetation prevents contaminated soils from leaving industrial sites through wind-blown dust or storm-driven runoff. Permanent or temporary irrigation systems can help quickly establish this vegetation and minimize environmental damage. Prevent overwatering in these reclamation products by pairing the sprinkler system with Nelson Control Valves and a TWIG® Wireless System.


Using wastewater for reclamation:

When using runoff or treated wastewater in reclamation and revegetation for large mining and industrial areas, consider Nelson Big Gun® sprinklers for maximum durability, less plugging, and the largest radius of coverage.

Reclaiming erosion-prone areas:

Nelson Rotator® Sprinklers work well for erosion-prone areas due to their high uniformity and light application rates. Note that they are designed specifically for establishing seed beds and fragile transplants. And when mounted on detachable risers or feedtube assemblies, Nelson Rotator® Sprinklers can be placed on virtually any location that could require revegetation.
