Erosion Control with Geosynthetics
Erosion is a natural process, resulting from the interaction between water and soil. Unfortunately, this can cause severe damage to infrastructure and endanger people’s lives. Culverts, roads, bridge foundations, embankments, landfill slopes, MSE walls, and other critical pieces of infrastructure are susceptible. With greater urbanization occurring around the world and population centers swelling along coastlines and rivers, the collective need to better manage erosion threats has intensified.
Geosynthetics provide highly engineered solutions for solving all of these erosion problems.

Key Topics Include:

Naturally occurring erosion processes
Available geosynthetic product and system approaches
Geosynthetic mitigation measures
Case studies

IGS North America’s Erosion Control Webinar Series is ideal for environmental engineers, infrastructure-owning agencies, design engineers, municipal engineers, regulators, general contractors, and other stakeholders.
