GEOSYNTHETICS IN STORMWATER MANAGEMENT
From subsoil drainage through to water distribution, Geofabrics provides cost effective options. Portable and wastewater distribution and treatment can be achieved through a range of innovative geosynthetic solutions.
Atlantis Flo-Vault is a structural modular system used to construct underground water storage. It uses surface and underground infiltration techniques resulting in clean water that can be re-used or allowed to re-enter the natural water system.
For ditch and channel lining applications, Concrete Canvas is rapidly becoming the lining material of choice for engineers and contractors around the world. Concrete Canvas is typically 10 times faster to install than conventional concrete solutions, with installation speeds of up to 200m2/hr possible with only a three-man crew for a longitudinal layup.
Concrete Canvas is also ideal for outfall applications as an effective method of preventing surface erosion and scour associated with water run-off from culvert outlets, spillways and over-toppings.
How Geofabrics can help with stormwater management:
- Water distribution pipe systems and channel lining solutions which are easy to install
- Water storage systems include dam lining and floating covers which minimise leakage and evaporation
