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.

Effective Retention Pond Lining and Embankment Protection

Similar to detention ponds, retention ponds are artificial bodies of water that are designed to keep a natural inland waterway, such as a river or a stream, clean. Unlike detention ponds, which may sometimes be dry, retention ponds are designed to be permanently filled with water.

HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattresses will prevent erosion while ensuring the pond is an effective countermeasure against stormwater runoff.

Erosion control at retention ponds is typically applicable for these use cases:

Industrial plant
Mine
Wastewater plant
Airport runway

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.

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.
