Crews had to put on the rock hammer. What is that going to cost in rock charges?

Mitigating rock isn’t fun for anybody. It delays the excavation of a project, it creates wear and tear on our equipment, and it cost you the customer to remove it. Rock charges are very different on every project that encounters it. If we have to dig out, scrape, chip, clip, hammer, or remove rock, there will be a cost associated. Those costs are listed in your contract under the terms and conditions. Please understand that the cost for this is determined by the amount of time that it takes to deal with it. Yes, this also includes the haul off and dump of the rock as well, it doesn’t stop when the hammer comes off. Those big dump trucks on the street don’t operate on hopes and dreams unfortunately, they do take fuel to run and most dump locations don’t want your rock.
