Conveyance / Ditch Structures


Conveyance/Ditch Structures require sediment control, erosion control and armoring solutions. Dependable conveyance lining systems, both hard armor and reinforced green armor, utilize geosynthetics to increase structure longevity and lessen the project environmental impact as compared to traditional rock riprap lining. Design certainty of geosynthetic solutions ensure hydraulic performance cost effectively meets, or exceeds, traditional conveyance rock lining. Erosion control measures are integral to geosynthetic conveyance liners.


Sediment Control

The purpose of sediment control in conveyance/ditch structures is to retain water born sediment. Permeable ditch barriers work to slow water velocity allowing sediments to drop from the water column. Reduced water velocity also results in minimized downstream erosion...


Turbidity is a measure of water clarity and is effected by land disturbance activities such as construction, exploration and mining. Turbidity solutions are designed to prevent the spread of silt and sediment in bodies of water when work is being performed in, on or near the shoreline, or in...


Conveyance/Ditch Structures require armoring for long-term site protection. Nilex solutions can eliminate the need for traditionally used materials such as rock riprap, often resulting in economical and environmental benefits...

Erosion Control

Conveyance/Ditch Structures often require temporary and permanent erosion control measures. Erosion control solutions for conveyance structures are designed to be a barrier on the soil surface to prevent aquatic sediment pollution of receiving water bodies...

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.
