Erosion & sediment control solutions for costal/beach region

by Erosion Control Forum     based in Bend, OREGON (USA)

Coastal erosion is the wearing away of land or the removal of beach or dune sediments by wave action, tidal currents, wave currents, or drainage. Removing sand and other materials from beaches and dunes due to tidal storm surges and construction purposes causes massive beach erosion damages and land loss of seashores, thus destroying the natural heritage of the coast and reducing the vibrancy of the tourism industry. Uprooting vegetation from coastal areas destabilises beaches and clearing sites inland results in increased soil and dirt particles being washed offshore and smothering coral reef systems.

Soil Stabilization

by Geo Products, L.L.C. - EnviroGrid Cellular Confinement (Geocell)     based in Houston, TEXAS (USA)

Problem: Poor load-bearing soils pose a significant problem for transportation and construction needs. Unpaved areas, such as access roads, paths, parking lots, driveways, etc can be highly vulnerable to near-surface shear failure and rutting, especially in moist conditions or areas with higher expected loads. Typically, engineers bridge over weak soils with rigid structures such as thick, reinforced concrete for roads and highways. However, such techniques are prohibitively expensive and inordinately difficult to install. The poorer the quality of the sub-base and the heavier the expected loads, the greater the amount and better the quality of support required.

Ground Penetrating Radars (GPR) for Construction and Infrastructure

by Transient Technologies LLC     based in Kyiv, UKRAINE

In construction and infrastructure field GPR application makes it possible to have the most detailed topography of undergrounding. GPRs help to discover ground water location, old underground passages and cavities remains and karst layers.

Erosion & sediment control solutions for wetlands

by Erosion Control Forum     based in Bend, OREGON (USA)

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.

Erosion Control & Sediment Control

by Nilex     based in Edmonton, ALBERTA (CANADA)

Nilex’s engineered erosion control and sediment control products reduce the damaging effects of rainfall, wind and wave action on soil structures while replacing or reducing the dependency on scarce natural resources.

Erosion Control 

Geosynthetic erosion control products are designed to reduce damaging effects of rainfall, run-off, and wave and wind action on soil structures by redirecting water flow or acting as a barrier between the soil surface and water.

Nilex Erosion Control systems include: Erosion Control Blankets (ECBs); Turf Reinforcement Mats(TRMs); Gabion systems; Concrete Revetment and Mattresses; and Cellular Confinementsystems.  

Sediment Control

Properly implemented sediment control practices can result in minimal soil loss, little damage to 
off-site receiving channels, enhanced project aesthetics and fewer complaints from regulators and the public.

Nilex Sediment Control systems include: GeoRidge Bio; Silt Fence; Turbidity Curtains;SedimentSTOP and Wattles; and Water Inflated Dams.

Erosion & sediment control solutions for water remediation

by Erosion Control Forum     based in Bend, OREGON (USA)

`Water should never be treated as a nonrenewable resource; it should always be treated with the respect it deserves as the foundation of life on the planet.` Most water on earth is in a continuous cycle between water bodies, land and the atmosphere. An important component of smart water solutions is the cycling of water treatment solutions using processes by which water enters, moves through and exits soil are essential for sustaining plants and soil organisms, transporting nutrients and recharging surface and ground water supplies. Water moving in soil also impacts the behavior and transport of soil solutes and their effect on water quality.

Erosion control and separation for hydraulic works

by Mattex Geosynthetics     based in Dubai, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

Tidal fluctuations and wave action can cause major damage to coastlines and off-shore construction projects. Nonwoven and specialty woven geotextiles can be used as a filter under layer beneath stone/ rock armour. Also riprap or synthetic erosion control mats are used to control erosion by disallowing the sub grade soil particles to erode. The geotextiles prevent erosion carried off by runoff water or other erosive waters, such as waves, stream flow, etc.

Slope Erosion Control

by Geo Products, L.L.C. - EnviroGrid Cellular Confinement (Geocell)     based in Houston, TEXAS (USA)

Problem: Soil particles are susceptible to being detached and carried away with concentrated runoff streams, forming rills and gullies that grow with time. The slope integrity is diminished, eroding the slope face and becoming a larger environmental and safety issue. Slopes steeper than the natural angle of repose for the slope materials require additional protection measures, as are slopes subject to more severe hydraulic stresses.

Groundwater Monitoring for Construction Sites

by HERON Instruments Inc.     based in Dundas, ONTARIO (CANADA)

All construction affects groundwater and a water management plan will be required. From deforestation to urbanisation, from holes to heaps and dams to drains, they all have an affect on the groundwater. Deforestation causes an increase in the rate of run off of rainwater resulting in lower percolation of precipitation into the soil and a consequent increase in soil erosion leading to slope instability, hence land and mud slides. The increased rate of run off can cause small streams and large rivers to rise and flood in a shorter time, but also to dry up sooner. These conditions cause great difficulties for subsistence farmers in developing countries. Urbanisation also causes faster run off because of the non permeable surfaces such as roads, roofs and car parks. This also creates drainage problems that can lead to contamination and erosion of natural water courses.

PEHD membrane sealing systems for dams

by ELD Environmental Leak Detection GmbH     based in Berlin, GERMANY

In the mining industry, dams are built in order to create large storage basins.
