The truck wash together with the anti tracking pad, will be considered a part of the erosion, sedimentation control program that is required on the majority of larger construction projects. Truck washes can be custom built on the project or they can be purchased as modular units and delivered to the jobsite. The use of reclaimed water is recommended for a truck wash system and is normally available in the mobile truck wash units.
