Sediment Control & Stabilization

Sediment Control is critical to eliminating the number one pollutant of rivers worldwide.

 

Flex MSE helps to stabilize and revegetate areas that then capture sediment, filter water and slow flows to further help with sediment control.

Flex MSE’s ability to act as both a sediment and erosion control solution make it an ideal choice when addressing waterway sediment levels or storm water design.

Flex MSE re-establishes natural land forms and builds a deep and varied root web – key features to reducing sediment and pollution levels in our waterways.  One simple system can be used to ‘retain, detain, and convey’.

Dykes, retention/detention ponds, abutments,  swales, ditches, urban waterways and wetlands can all be built to any scale with Flex MSE.

An added benefit with Flex MSE is the ability to use the system for focused storm water management.  By relying on the system’s gentle percolation rate and flow through ability, damaging flow rates can be lowered and prevent sediment pollution from entering storm water.

Governments and Municipalities worldwide have begun adopting strict Erosion & Sediment Control guidelines. Best Management Practices (BMPs) must be in place for most new developments and include silt plans, designed sediment discharge, pond deactivation methodology, and clear identification of sensitive waterways. Agricultural lands on waterways are falling under stricter municipal water quality plans as well.  Creating resilient, plant based banks that filter and collect sediment while resisting major erosion is a solid investment for everyone involved.
