Typically made from polypropylene or polyester, geotextile fabrics come in three basic forms: woven (resembling mail bag sacking), needle punched (resembling felt), or heat bonded (resembling ironed felt).

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

With traditional sediment control devices like straw wattles and silt fence, a drop-and-go installation style could be disastrous. Proper trenching, staking, and preparation of the BMP-soil interface means the difference between success and failure, which has led many manufacturers of sediment control products to design the next generation of more

Retaining Walls—Beauty With Purpose

Retaining Walls—Beauty With Purpose

Retaining walls vary tremendously in design and setting, but they all share a functional purpose. A well-designed retaining wall can enhance the appearance of a site, but if it doesn’t stabilize the earth and last, it’s not a success. Retaining walls in the following projects add value to their sites

The First Line of Defense: Protecting Inlets and Storm Drains

The First Line of Defense: Protecting Inlets and Storm Drains

In stormwater management for both temporary and post-construction measures, inlet and storm drain protection is one of the first lines of defense. It’s also a measure that often works in combination with other best management practices (BMPs) as part of an overall erosion control or stormwater management program.
