As part of the Cache County, UT Emergency Watershed Protection Program administered through the NRCS, several failing roadway slopes were identified for repair as the County sought to improve overall transportation infrastructure. A section of South Canyon Road near Paradise, UT was undermined by Davenport Creek, and sloughing/sliding failures led to collapse of the county road.


ARMORMAX® was selected as a lower cost, rapidly installed vegetated alternative to a full slope gabion installation. The system was deployed for immediate protection and installed atop hydraulic growth mediums.
