What is Erosion Control?

Erosion control is the practice of preventing or reducing water or wind erosion in highway embankments, land development, coastal areas, and site construction as well as lining slopes for reservoirs, storm water ponds and irrigation channels.

Applications of Erosion Control

Strata’s incline solutions help prevent slope erosion by effectively confining the upper infill along the slope. Strata’s slope erosion system can be used on very steep slopes (as steep as 60 degrees) and provides a cost-effective solution compared to alternatives such as stone pitching. The system provides multiple infill options such as vegetative soil, concrete, crushed stone or debris, sand, and practically any locally available material based on the outer finish required. When a geomembrane liner is used and cannot be punctured, StrataWeb® is a perfect system to protect the liner and the slope. It can be laid on the liner without any requirement for puncturing and is anchored at the crest of the slope. Strata’s system includes all accessories required to lay and anchor the slope – StrataLock®, StrataFast®, and StrataCord®.

Success stories of Erosion Control

Projects that have used Erosion Control

Slope erosion protection at Katania Heights using StrataWeb®

Katania Heights is a newly completed subdivision on the Nelson. As part of the sub-divisions stormwater design, the steep spillways had to be protected from erosion during storm events. It was decided that lining these spillways with concrete would be a robust solution

Slope protection for railway track for thermal power plant

The railway link between Goindwal Sahib and the nearest railway station, Khadoor Sahib, is a single-track corridor for the transportation of coal to the thermal power plant at Goindwal Sahib. Since the railway line controls the lifeline of the power plant, the rail link needed to be kept fully.

Embankment Slope Protection Stabilization in Odisha

Side slope erosion has always been an issue for highway embankments. Especially during the monsoons, these slopes pose a challenge. The Larsen & Toubro-IDPI SPV, constructing its 163 km long Rourkela-Sambalpur tollway road project in Odisha, faced this issue.
