PROJECT SUMMARY In March 2009, slope failures along the banks of the E-8 Canal in Port St Lucie, FL necessitated the repair and stabilization to protect surrounding properties. The City of Port St Lucie used funding from Tropical Storm Fay NRCS EWP Recovery grants to have the ARMORMAX® Anchor Reinforced Vegetation System installed along select areas of the canal banks to provide engineered structural stability against shallow plane failure of the slopes. The City has since continued additional repairs of the canal banks as part of the overall NRCS funding from Hurricane Wilma.
