Problem

Frequent flooding within the Arkansas River watershed in Tulsa, Oklahoma caused incision and major erosion through the Jenks residential community. City of tulsa Public Works sought a low impact, vegetated solution to stabilize steep stream banks for shallow plane slope failure reinforcement.

Solution

Propex worked with the City's civil engineering consultant (SAIC) to model and design slope stabilization using the ARMORMAX® Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions™, and provided installations assistance in 2013-14 for the successful completion of the project.
