Erosion Protection for Infrastructure

The Soil Conservation Service has completed many projects to protect infrastructure from erosion. Uncontrolled surface water and flood events often expose valuable pipelines and structures. Our projects have included design and construct solutions for;

  • Flood exposed high pressure gas mains
  • Erosion threatened bridge structures
  • Exposed fibre optic cables
  • Water and sewer mains
  • Undercut roads and embankments
  • Exposed pipelines
  • Dam spillways  

Often the solution to these issues is a thorough understanding of the flowline's dynamics, their related catchments and the upstream activity.  Our experience takes all these into consideration when finding a practical solution for you.
