Water Management


Nilex’s Water Management solutions offer economical, technical and environmentally beneficial alternatives to traditional ways of managing drainage, stormwater, groundwater, and both clean and contaminated diversions on industrial, mine, and oil and gas sites. Applications range from sports fields and golf course drainage, to Low Impact Development (LID) stormwater applications, to green roofs and lined diversion ditches.

Water Management Applications

Stormwater Management

As stormwater is absorbed into the ground it replenishes aquifers and flows into streams and rivers. In developed areas, impervious surfaces prevent stormwater from naturally infiltrating into the ground and the runoff water can cause stream bank erosion, habitat destruction, infrastructure...

Building Envelope Moisture Control

Building Envelope Moisture Control effectively deals with rainwater and groundwater challenges facing the roof, podium, terrace and foundation of a building through the use of green roofs, podium/terrace planters and foundation drains. These solutions typically consist of a combination of...

Groundwater Conveyance / Ditching Systems

For both cleanwater and contaminated water diversion applications, groundwater conveyance/ditching systems collect water and convey it in a sealed ditch with the predictability of a constant friction coefficient to a given outfall, such as a pipe, spillway or waterway...

Turfgrass Drainage

Comprehensive turf drainage solutions remove excess soil moisture to promote turf growth, improve turf health and reduce maintenance costs in sports fields, passive parks and residential applications...

Floodwater Mitigation

Floodwater mitigation involves managing and controlling flood water movement resulting from high tides, higher run-off and winter storms through the use of flood walls. Cut-off walls should be used to manage low lying flood plains, manage seepage and at sites where groundwater is contaminated...

Road Drainage

Provision for adequate drainage is of paramount importance in road design and cannot be overemphasized. The presence of excess water or moisture within the roadway will adversely affect the engineering properties of the materials with which it was designed. The destructive effect of flowing...

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
