The Problem:

Design and install a channel protection system and new sewer line in a creek prone to flooding while maintaining the natural appearance of the surrounding neighborhood.

The Solution:

Presto Geoweb® Cellular Confinement System Residents and Flood Control personnel of the city of Roseville, California are firm believers in cellular confinement technology. Presto Geoweb® cellular confinement system was used to build a series of channel embankments and vehicle access ramps, service roads and scour aprons along seven miles of the city’s Cirby Creek. Construction involved widening the channel and placing an 18 inch sewer line in the invert of the creek closely bordered by residences.

Finding an effective solution that offered cost savings and aesthetics was critical to the government officials and residents of Roseville. The Presto Geoweb system provided the solution, and remains in strong, stable condition even after weathering ferocious flooding and being under more than 10 feet of water during January 1995 storms.
