Problem

The 18-hole golf course in Boulder City, NV is part of the city's floodplain master plan, requiring energy dissipation and erosion control for stormwater flows exceeding 14ft/sec velocity.

Solution

Budget constraints and aesthetic expectations of the surrounding vicinity dictated an innovative lining approach utilizing reinforce vegetation for ultimate protection. The result was the design and construction of a composite TEEtoGREEN™ and Articulated Block solution that was rapidly deployed for immediate protection.
