Composite laminated GCLs offer puncture and tensile strengths beyond conventional geomembranes. These GCLs offer the low permeability of a geomembrane combined with the high swelling and self healing characteristics of a traditional GCL. With their ease of installation, cost-effectiveness and resilience to physical and climate issues, GCLs are often specified in canals, stormwater impoundments or wetlands to control seepage and conserve valuable water where native soils are too permeable.
The largest threat to wetlands is the risk of being flooded with sediment as a result of a poorly managed construction site. Most construction projects require erosion control to prevent damage to the wetlands.
The Sorbisense method is especially suitable for measurements in dynamic environments. For example, in rivers, streams and lakes.
The method is innovative and allows you to implement continuous and cost effective measurements in both urban and in rural areas. For example, measuring the leaching of nutrients from the cultivation of wetlands and measuring water quality in rainwater and sewage.
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.
A truck driver for the Plains at Stevens Facility overfilled his truck on the morning of 9/17/2014. Approximately 60 barrels of API gravity oil were discharged impacting surrounding soil and an adjoining wetland area. Approximately 25 barrels of that discharge migrated along a ditch and an unnamed tributary of the Bogue Homo water body for approximately 0.17 miles before being contained in the headwaters of the Bogue Homo. Oil Shark® fence was installed to prevent storm events from distributing oil to...
Total reduced sulfur(s), which include hydrogen sulfide (H2S), methyl mercaptan (methanethiol, CH3SH), dimethyl sulfide (CH3SCH3), and dimethyl disulfide (CH3S2CH3), occur naturally in the environment and can also be present in numerous industrial gaseous streams – petroleum refining, natural gas extraction, and chemical operations like the pulp/paper industry. Hydrogen sulfide is the most prevalent of the total reduced sulfurs, and is commonly found in volcanic gases, marshes and swamps, wetlands and mud flats,...
