Tackling concrete ditch lining requirements is easy with HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete.
With a concrete ditch lining system, you can permanently control erosion in ditches both big and small. A permanent rather than temporary solution, HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete can be used in virtually any trapezoidal ditch, including drainage ditches, irrigation ditches, and stormwater ditches.

How is HYDROTEX used in concrete ditch lining projects?
Just like canals and channels, ditches are subject to bank erosion. The ditch’s embankment can encroach upon the adjacent roadway, infrastructure, or valuable property, leading to a catastrophic collapse.
The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete
Protect your ditch from bank erosion by casting a concrete lining using HYDROTEX fabric formworks for the casting of concrete. With HYDROTEX, the bank won’t erode, protecting valuable adjacent structures and property.
You have a wide variety of options to line the ditch, including permeable concrete mattresses, vegetated concrete mattresses, and impermeable concrete mats. The permeable mats accommodate hydrostatic pressure relief, while the impermeable mat prevents vegetation.
Best HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for Lining Ditches with Concrete
HYDROTEX® Filter Point
Use HYDROTEX Filter Point fabric forms to create a permeable ditch lining system that provides hydrostatic pressure relief. This mattress comes in thicknesses ranging from 2 to 16 inches to accommodate different shear stress environments.
HYDROTEX® Filter Band® Concrete Mattress
Like Filter Point, HYDROTEX Filter Band fabric forms are apt for casting a permeable concrete lining that will reduce wave-run up while preventing bank erosion at ditches.
HYDROTEX® Uniform Section
For an impermeable solution that won’t allow vegetation, consider Uniform Section concrete linings, the strongest alternative to concrete slope paving. Simply place the double-walled geosynthetic panels across the ditch’s sides and bottom, then pump with aggregate concrete to cast an entirely custom-made concrete mattress.
Enviromat is a vegetated option for ditch lining projects with stringent aesthetic requirements.

Concrete Mattresses for Roadside Ditches
Roadside ditches don’t have to be left to the mercy of the wind, rain, and other environmental factors.
Line them with a HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete mattress to minimize soil loss in any ditch in your municipality and mitigate erosion issues before they arise.

HYDROTEX: The Best Permanent Ditch Lining System
Forget reinforced polyethylene (RPE) ditch liners, cement, rip rap, gravel, or precast concrete.
HYDROTEX fabric-formed concrete is the superior erosion control solution for your next ditch lining project. Permanent and hassle-free, a HYDROTEX concrete mat only requires a small concrete pump and four to five people for installation.*
It’s a proven erosion control system that has been in use for more than thirty years. Though applicable in a multitude of industries, HYDROTEX is typically not used for residential ditch lining projects.
Aside from being easier to install and cheaper to transport than alternatives, HYDROTEX is incredibly versatile and has numerous applications, including concrete channel lining, concrete canal lining, and embankment protection.
