Channels & Canals

Channel hero
Shoreline & Waterways/Channels & Canals

The primary purpose of armoring channels and canals is to prevent erosion resulting from hydraulic or geotechnical forces. Selecting the right solution is critical to overall performance including:

  • Protecting the natural and riparian habitat
  • Lowering operation and maintenance costs
  • Extending project life
  • Addressing aesthetic concerns

Performance criteria for channel stabilization materials have traditionally focused on hydraulic parameters like shear stress and flow velocity, but field performance is also highly dependent on non-hydraulic factors including UV resistance and tensile strength. Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions are commonly used for channel stabilization applications in temperate, semi-arid, and arid conditions.
