Channel Erosion Protection

University of South Carolina Channel

Columbia, SC
  • Due to this site being in the middle of campus, USC wanted an aesthetic solution that blended into the environment and could be quickly installed with lightweight equipment.
  • The channel is at a steep slope (~10%), so a robust armoring solution was required.
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.
