Jerrit Canyon Spillway

Elko, NV
  • HydroTurf® was chosen for this site due to performance under high-velocity water flows (25-30 ft/sec), its aesthetic nature as well as the low maintenance needed post installation and cost savings.
  • The tan color of the HydroTurf installed on this downchute blends well with the surrounding arid Nevada landscape.
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.
