  • HydroTurf® was chosen for this site due to its impermeability to stormwater from contracting contamination.
  • This project required a very high velocity application with HydroTurf outperforming other revetment systems including articulated block, gabions, and riprap.
  • HydroTurf provided an economical solution with significant cost savings.
HydroTurf® is an engineered revetment solution designed to provide armoring of hydraulic structures against high velocity and shear stress. It offers the aesthetics of vegetation combined with better performance than traditional hard armor.
