In the past 50 years, hurricanes have become more intense, major flood events have increased and urban expansion has greatly strained storm water management systems. Mitigation projects that armor shorelines and waterways, while simultaneously protecting human health and the environment, are increasingly important. The National Institute of Building Sciences reports that on average, for every dollar invested in mitigation, communities prevent $6 in disaster losses. For more than 20 years, Propex’s Engineered Earth Armoring Solutions have been used by flood control districts throughout the United States to provide long-term solutions for floodplains, channels, canals, levees and other water management infrastructure. Our resilient solutions support a nature-based approach to shoreline stabilization and are more cost effective and environmentally-friendly than hard armor alternatives like rock riprap and concrete.
