OK, Michele, I am taking you up on your Magic Eightball offer.
Dear Michele and WWW:
What is the deal with these orange net things you see at construction sites? My understanding is that it is an environmental law that they have to be there for erosion control. But they are totally useless. But it is the law, so there they are.
I heard this from a relative in the real estate business many years ago. I recently tried to google up some info, just out of curiosity, but came up short. All I found was sites like this one that sell the stuff.
My gut feeling is that the silly stuff is useless, and producing and disposing of mile after mile of it every year is probably in fact bad for the environment.
It is just one of my pet peeves. Every time I see the stuff, which is obviously very often, I do a little Hatey Smurf dance in my head.
So, Michele, give! What is the deal here???
