Designing for Water Control Applications
Pond and Channel LiningEngineers and hydrologists have been designing water control structures for thousands of years, diverting water to irrigate fields and protect against flooding. In the past many of these structures were constructed from earth, concrete, or steel, and required routine maintenance and regular inspections. Advancements in manufacturing and material science have provided additional products and technologies to design longer lasting, cost effective water control structures. Synthetic sheet piling is an easy to install solution to line channels and ponds. Protecting against erosion and providing a seepage barrier, sheet piling structures can be designed as fly ash ponds, retention ponds and channel liners.
Sustainable Weirs and Water DiversionShoreGuard Vinyl and UltraComposite FRP have decades of proven field performance as a successful structure solution to controlling water and protecting land. Baffle walls and weirs constructed from ShoreGuard’s vinyl sheet piling is an eco-friendly and sustainable structure solution which contains over 90% recycled materials. The inert effect of this innovative material provides a long lasting solution that does not rust nor leach chemicals like other material options. The installation of vinyl sheet pile panels also minimizes ecological disturbance, a great benefit for environmentally concerned areas. For projects with extreme strength requirements, UltraComposite sheet piling is also a great material choice for many water control structures.
