INTRODUCTION

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.

SOLUTIONS

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...

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...

EAST 112 AVENUE TURF REINFORCEMENT MATS

The widening of Northglenn Colorado’s busy 112 Avenue corridor resulted in a narrowing of its adjoining drainage channel. The narrowing required permanent stabilization for banks with a new 2:1 side slope. The channel redesign included two intersections and drop structures along its 4,000…
