  • Great performance comes from articulated concrete blocks

    Whenever you are planning out a construction project, you need to take into account the potential for erosion to occur. Without doing this, not only could you risk sacrificing the quality of the soil on the construction site, but you also risk damaging properties around the site and causing irreparable damage to the local environment. All of this could result in your being slapped with some ...

  • The importance of storm water management: how winter storms can cause soil erosion and damage to property

    As a society, we expect weather to change, storms to vary in severity and damage to be done at some point or another as a result.

  • Automation scheme holds back the tide to improve flood protection

    The River Ritec flows towards Tenby, where it discharges via a 780 metre culvert/outfall system that passes beneath a railway embankment and sand dunes to discharge into the sea below typical low tide level. There is a history of flooding upstream of the culvert which imposes a restriction on the discharge of flows from the river catchment area during high river flow events. This is particularly ...

  • New data on soil erosion by water reveals Mediterranean at highest flood risk

    Rainfall is one of the principle causes of soil erosion. It breaks apart soil, dislodges it from its surroundings, and washes it away as runoff. These mechanisms have an effect on how much water the soil may hold, how fast water flows over the soil, and even on the soil depth. In a much broader sense soil erosion can negatively affect vegetation growth and yields, as well as water quality, and ...

  • Safe Drain® Prevents 45,000lbs of Sediment and 12lbs of Heavy Metals from Entering California Bay Area Waterways
