Erosion & Sediment Control


Erosion Control & Sediment Control

Erosion Control & Sediment Control solutions keep soil and seed on construction sites where it is needed and out of storm sewers, nature’s drainages and waterways. Nilex’s site armoring systems are effective temporary and permanent erosion control solutions that provide scour protection and/or energy dissipation in conveyance and slope applications. These solutions often replace rock, saving money and further protecting the environment.

Erosion & Sediment Control Applications

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...


Roadway construction often requires temporary or permanent erosion ditch and/or slope armoring. The importance of erosion control in roadway construction is to keep the bare soils of ditches and slopes in place until vegetation is established. Higher velocity roadside ditches can be effectively...


Slopes can present serious vegetation, erosion and sediment control challenges. In addition to the effects of runoff and the need to protect wildlife, many projects face issues surrounding aesthetics. Nilex provides temporary and permanent solutions for your project needs...


Reclamation is the process in which disturbed land is returned to a pre-disturbance natural landscape or other pre-determined end use. Challenges experienced with reclamation projects often revolve around vegetation establishment and rehabilitation of watercourses and soil conditions...

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.

Nilex was an invaluable asset in the successful completion of the Troutbrooke Drive Slope Stabilization project in Toronto, by providing engineering assistance, installation training and continuous on and off site technical support.
