Stream banks and shorelines can present far-reaching erosion and sediment control challenges. Variable flow conditions and shoreline shear stresses must be considered as well as the effects of flooding, runoff and topography. The need to protect water quality plus aquatic and wildlife habitats can be critical. No matter what erosion control problems and other issues are part of your project, you can be sure we have a solution that works. Whether your shoreline or stream bank project is simple or demanding, and whether it requires temporary and/or permanent erosion control solutions, you can rely on North American Green`s RollMax Rolled Erosion Control Systems and RevetMax Flexible Revetment Systems for durable protection, stabilization and reinforcement.

Pore pressure variability and control is one of the most significant aspects of Geotechnical Engineering practice related to slope stability, underground openings, foundation of heavy structures, and water retention facilities. Pore pressure effects are most often controlled by natural small-scale hydrogeologic details. Characterization and management of pore pressures requires closely-arrayed repeated measurements to determine the effects of these details for design of appropriate mitigation measures, for performance monitoring and control of the selected mitigation measure. Since the late 1970’s the Westbay System has been used on some of the largest landslide studies in the world.

Our porous pavement solutions can be designed for use with a variety of permeable fill to suit any loading and stormwater requirements. Three high-performance paving options offer porous solutions to hard surface pavements: GEOBLOCK grass pavers; GEOPAVE aggregate pavers; and GEOWEB pervious soil stabilization systems - all economical options for emergency, utility and site access roads, and permeable parking areas. Each solution is suitable for low impact development (LID) and green infrastructure design and contribute to green building credits for managing stormwater and reducing site disturbance.
Because of the soil filled nature of our barriers and the ability to achieve a variety of vertical or pyramid stacked configurations, we have a number of erosion control applications we are commonly used for. Applications include: Soil stabilization, Retaining walls (can be self-anchored with 90 degree tie-ins), Riverbank protection, Toe protection, Wetland restoration, Beach protection.

The GEOWEB system is the ‘go to’ solution for challenging soil stability problems for both new construction and repair work. The GEOWEB 3D system is a versatile solution for ballast reinforcement, yard stabilization and erosion protection of embankments and stormwater channels, offering a more economical solution than geogrids or other 2D solutions - especially in soft soil environments and in heavy, repeated loading areas.
Airport Runway, Taxiway and Shoulder Stabilization. Airport pavements designed to support heavy commercial aircraft and vehicle loads require a stable base to maintain pavement performance. This can be challenging, especially in areas with soft soils and poor soils prone to settlement. The GEOWEB system stabilizes the pavement base layer with 50% less fill, and offers a more stable base that results in longer pavement life. The GEOWEB system is an effective base stabilization system as well as surface protection for unpaved, permeable shoulders and access way.
