EZ Street can serve as a permanent material around manhole covers, water valves, drains, and catch basin grates if installed properly. Achieving adequate compaction should be the primary focus for these applications as the hardware can cause significant compaction obstacles and may tend to shift under traffic. Because it is difficult to obtain maximum compaction densities around metal lids, rings, and grates, it is recommended that the
EZ Street material be left slightly higher than the surrounding hard surface in order to accommodate secondary compaction as a result of traffic flow. Again, EZ Street should be applied and compacted in maximum 2" lifts with each lift receiving adequate compaction effort.
