Geosynthetics in Erosion and Sediment Control and
Erosion-Resistant Hydraulic Structures
Joel Sprague, TRI Environmental; Markus Wilke, HUESKER Synthetic GmbH

Geosynthetic-enhanced erosion and sediment control systems are now used
routinely in temporary construction site applications, as well as, in steep
slope stabilization and shoreline and coastal erosion protection. On the
construction site, geosynthetic-enhanced rolled erosion control products
(RECPs) and sediment retention devices (SRDs) have become essential
to pollution prevention plans. In permanent applications, geosynthetic
solutions now include specially designed geotextile filters beneath hard
armor systems, and deploying advanced erosion protection technologies
such as anchored geotextiles, geocellular containment systems, fabric-formed
concrete revetments, and sand-filled geosynthetic mattresses, tubes, and
other containers. This short course will provide and detailed look at all these
emerging technologies and how they are being used to cost-effectively protect
against erosion from rainfall, runoff, stream flow, and shoreline wave action.

Stephan Gale and Nathan Lichty, Gale-Tec Engineering

Increased rainfall amounts and intensities, along with prolonged wet periods
have created instabilities along our roadways and rivers/streams. The exact
causes of these vary, but the threat to public safety is a constant. This short
course will access the causes, discuss the evaluation of alternate solutions and
present construction case histories which include a wide range of resilient
solutions for each of the unique challenges presented.
This course will highlight recent projects that balance geotechnical needs,
hydraulics, local and federal permitting requirements, wetland impacts, special
river designations, costs, unique site constraints and aesthetic goals to arrive at
cost effective solutions. Through a series of case histories, we will review design
and constructed solutions ranging from hard armored riprap and sheetpile
walls to vegetated geogrid reinforced soil slopes with various erosion resistant
faces to shallow soil anchors and grouted hollow bar reinforcement.
