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 in sediment capping projects?
Contaminated sediment is a pervasive problem in industrialized shoreline environments. In the earlier years of the Industrial Revolution, industries located along waterways were less concerned with releasing what we’ve now learned to be toxic substances. To protect the future of our waterways and prevent an environmental disaster, you must install a sediment capping system.
The Solution: HYDROTEX Fabric Forms for the In-Situ Casting of Concrete
Protect vulnerable waterways by using HYDROTEX fabric forms to cast a permanent concrete mattress over filtration media such as organophilic mats or sand layers. Our mat protects the filtration media from damage caused by waves, currents, dredging operations, and objects such as rocks, stumps, and boat anchors.
