Mid South Erosion Control can use a wide range of products, including fabric forming concrete, to control erosion and reduce maintenance on drainage ditches. Our products, like fabric forming conrete, can provide vegetated hard armoring to control erosion of the ditch side slope and bottom. Vegetation helps to reduce velocities in ditches allowing for a more controlled discharge of water through drainage structure. Vegetation also reduces the amount of siltation carried by water helping to keep pipes and culverts open for longer periods of time before cleaning becomes.
In areas where vegetation control is impractical due to development, our products, like fabric formed concrete, can produce a smooth concrete lined channel with little or no vegetation to control. Vegetation that grows in silt collected in the ditch bottom can be control with herbicide and spray equipment.
Construction is made simple with fabric formed concrete products. We don’t require form work to construct our ditch linings, so in most cases dewatering of the ditch is not necessary. Simply clear your ditch of vegetation, grade the side slopes and bottom, place a layer of geotextile fabric, fabric forms, and fill with ready mix grout. We can pump the ready mix grout up to 500’ away from the forming system, this reduces the damage caused by large equipment and cement trucks in restricted residential area.
The form comes in a variety of shapes and thicknesses to meet any specific requirements needed.
