Water edge protection

Erosion protection of water retention ponds and water reservoirs

Geomembranes used to protect retention ponds or lined impounding reservoirs need to be protected against UV and mechanical damage, usually by a layer of soil. Our products protect this soil from erosion and sliding, and encourages vegetation.

To avoid sliding of the cover soil on top of geomembrane slopes, it needs to be deeply rooted by vegetation. Enkamat helps to reinforce this particular zone.

OUR SOLUTION

Erosion prevention matting like Enkamat provides stability and support for vegetative growth on geomembrames. Enka-Tex non-wovens will give protection against mechanical damage.

Use of Enkamat erosion control mats

Use of Enkamat erosion control mats

  • Enkamat W and Enkamat R may avoid high loads and long-term creep failure.
  • Provides the necessary friction with the soil and act as a griplayer.
  • Allows vegetation to grow.
  • Offers microstability at ground level.
  • Stops erosion at, below, and above the waterline.
  • Enkamat A20 offers immediate protection against turbulent water flows.
FUNCTIONS
  • Surface stability.
  • Support of vegetation.
  • Erosion control.
