Problem

The Greenville Club Lake Dam embankment was experiencing severe erosion de to wave action caused by high winds. The consultant needed to come up with a solution to prevent any future erosion that could cause potential failure.

Solution

ARMORMAX® 75 Engineered Earth Armoring Solution combined with other best management practices for protection were chosen to protect the dam. ARMORMAX was chosen as the best solution because it offered a lower cost solution over traditional hard armoring solution and could easily be combined with other best management practices for erosion protection and bank stabilization.
