Resolve underwater scour issues with HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete scour protection mattresses.

The best solution for localized scour underwater and on land, HYDROTEX provides superior protection against harsh hydraulic forces under the sea.

How? The geosynthetic panels are laid out underwater at berths, ports, and harbors, then pumped with fine aggregate concrete. The result is a fabric-formed concrete mat that conforms to the scour depth around pier piles, on embankments, and under any marine structure.

How is HYDROTEX used at retention ponds?

The Problem

Retention ponds are a critical part of many highway systems, municipal drainage systems, and industrial facilities. The embankments of the ponds can be eroded by wind-generated waves, reducing its stormwater management functionality. Unwanted weeds and vegetation can also grow on the embankments, affecting flow velocity and making the pond difficult to maintain.

The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete

Permanently control erosion at retention ponds by casting a concrete mattress that keeps vegetation from growing on the embankment.

Depending on your or your client’s needs, we can also manufacture a fabric form that will allow you to cast a vegetated concrete mat, providing erosion protection while also accommodating aesthetic requirements.

Permanent Erosion Control for Detention Ponds

Get a project estimate today:



HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete is a proven method to permanently prevent erosion at detention ponds.

Detention ponds are excavated structures that are designed to temporarily hold excess water before it goes into a natural body of water. Sometimes, it may be dry. To prevent the soil from eroding, an embankment protection system is required. HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete is the leading erosion control solution for detention ponds and retention ponds, saving millions in repair costs.

How is HYDROTEX used at detention ponds?

The Problem

Like canals, channels, retention ponds, and cooling ponds, detention ponds can suffer from bank erosion, which causes the embankment to recede toward any adjacent infrastructure. As the soil recedes, these structures can potentially collapse.

The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete

Solve this problem by installing a concrete mattress using our HYDROTEX fabric formworks for the casting of concrete erosion control mattresses. Whether vegetated or non-vegetated, a HYDROTEX mattress will control bank erosion and protect valuable adjacent structures or property.

With HYDROTEX, you have a wide range of options. Using our fabric forms, you can cast a permeable, impermeable, or vegetated mattress—all while keeping costs low and your profits high.

Protect Municipal Detention Ponds with HYDROTEX

In municipal applications, detention ponds are excavated beside rivers and other inland bodies of water to temporarily hold excess water, preventing flooding and mitigating soil loss.

Though they play a critical role in erosion control, the ponds themselves must also be protected to ensure they continue functioning. A HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattress will provide municipal detention ponds much needed protection against erosion.

Why do you need EROSION CONTROL FOR INDUSTRIAL WASTE DETENTION PONDS?

Industrial waste is the unusable by-product of industrial activity in factories, mills, and mining operations.

Some examples include paper products, chemical solvents, paints, metals and radioactive waste.

Industrial wastewater treatment is used to contain and treat waters that have been contaminated by anthropogenic industrial or commercial activities prior to it being released into the environment or re-used. Industrial waste treatment often requires detention systems that include one or more basins, or ponds designed to receive, hold and treat wastewater for a predetermined length of time.

Synthetex’s HYDROTEX® fabric-formed concrete mattresses prevent erosion of the detention pond’s banks from wind-generated waves and the growth of long grass and weeds that block wind and provide breeding areas for flies, mosquitoes and other insects.

Municipal wastewater treatment plants can also extract similar benefits from using HYDROTEX to protect these vulnerable areas.

Erosion Control Solutions for Coal-Fired Power Plants

When designing and operating a thermal power plant, the by-products and their effects have to be heavily considered.

Waste heat energy, which remains due to the finite efficiency of the power cycle, is released directly into the atmosphere, directly to river or lake water, or indirectly into the atmosphere using a cooling tower with river or lake water used as a cooling medium. Synthetex’s HYDROTEX® Fabric Formed Concrete mattresses are often used as erosion protection for the side slopes of water cooling channels and retention basins.

Fly ash, or flue-ash, is a residue generated typically in coal combustion that makes up the fine particles that rise with flue gases. Ash that does not rise is called bottom ash.

Fly ash is generally stored at coal power plants or placed in landfills. HYDROTEX® Fabric Formed Concrete mattresses are often used as erosion protection for the side slopes of fly ash containment and settling ponds.

About 43% is recycled as pozzolan. Fly ash is often used as a pozzolan and partial replacement for Portland cement in the production of fine aggregate concrete. Pozzolans ensure the setting of concrete and provide concrete with more protection from wet conditions and chemical attack. The fine aggregate concrete utilized for filling of HYDROTEX® fabric forms typically replaces up to 35% of the cement content with fly ash.

Nuclear Power Plants

As with the conventional generation of power, waste heat energy remains due to the finite efficiency of the power cycle.

It is then released into the environment or into cooling towers and channels. HYDROTEX® fabric-formed concrete is the best erosion protection product for these channels.

Power plant reactor fuel rods spend approximately three operational cycles (typically six years total) inside the reactor, typically until the point where about 3% of their uranium has been fissioned.

At that point, they are moved to a spent fuel pool where the short-lived isotopes generated by fission can decay away. After approximately five years in a spent fuel pool, the spent fuel is then radioactively and thermally cool enough to handle, at which point it can either be moved to dry storage casks or reprocessed. HYDROTEX® is an apt solution for the protection of spent fuel pools.

Why choose HYDROTEX® for your industrial, environmental, and containment project?

Whether you need concrete channel lining, pipeline cover protection, or erosion protection for a retention pond, we are here to help.

HYDROTEX® fabric-formed concrete mattresses are the top solution for industrial engineers, environmental engineers, and containment professionals seeking to diminish the environmental footprint of their plant or manufacturing site.

Are you working on a project site that requires one or multiple of these solutions? Our engineers are here to help. We have over three decades of experience manufacturing geosynthetics for industrial, environmental, and containment projects and can find the perfect solution for you.

HYDROTEX® Uniform Section

Uniform Section (US) Concrete Linings

Uniform Section (US) Concrete Linings


Uniform Section (US) Concrete Linings are similar to traditional concrete slope paving.  They create a solid, high-quality concrete lining with a relatively low hydraulic resistance and uniform cross-section.  Uniform Section linings are used to reduce the infiltration or exfiltration of aggressive waste and chemical fluids into or out of open channels and basins.  They are also used to reduce exfiltration in arid regions where open channels and basins require watertight linings.

Uniform Section Concrete Linings are resistant to leachate and most chemicals.  They protect geosynthetic liners from mechanical damage, exposure to UV light, and freeze-thaw cycles.  These self-supporting, high-strength linings permit construction on steep side slopes and replace the conventional use of clay or sand as liner protection. Placement of the forms and concrete filling can be performed without the use of equipment on the liner.  The tensile strength and abrasion resistance of the fabric protect the liner from the pumped concrete.

HYDROTEX® Articulating Block

Articulating Block (AB) Concrete Linings

Articulating Block (AB) Concrete Linings


Articulating Block Mats form cable-reinforced concrete block mattresses that resist erosive forces. They are often constructed where a revetment is exposed to frontal attack by wave action.

AB Mats are typically used to protect coastlines, canals, rivers, lakes, reservoirs, underwater pipelines, bridge piers, and other marine structures from propeller wash, ship wakes, wind waves, currents, and high velocity flows. They are also used in environmental construction for landfill caps, down chutes, and collector channels.

The AB fabric form consists of a series of compartments linked by an interwoven perimeter. Grout ducts interconnect the compartments, and high-strength revetment cables are installed between and through the compartments and grout ducts.

Once filled, the AB Mats become a mattress of pillow-shaped, rectangular concrete blocks. The interwoven perimeters between the blocks serve as hinges to permit articulation. The cables remain embedded in the concrete blocks to link the blocks together and facilitate articulation.
