When you’re quite literally watching your money or budget erode away…

Over the course of 30 years, a stream had eroded away a Daytona, FL school’s property line (next to a canal) countless times requiring expensive, regular repairs. During rainy seasons, it was not uncommon to see water reaching most of the way up the canal bank. Yikes! After numerous costly repairs, the city desired a permanent solution to significantly cut down on future maintenance and repair costs.

HydroTurf concrete revetment system was selected due to its 50-year lifespan, turf-like appearance, strength against high-flow rates and low maintenance needs (no mowing required). The installation team on this project did a fantastic job, with 2 people installing 4,000 sf over three days. To learn more about Hydroturf, click here: http://bit.ly/314dDlQ

How New Orleans is dealing with flooding - CNN Video

Sharing a great video - worth the watch (includes a quick cameo by PowerBlock). It's heartbreaking to see the devastation certain cities experience from regular flooding, but also incredible to see the inspiration it brings to young adults who choose a career path specifically to be a part of the solution. Sending out a big THANK YOU to all of the engineers, contractors, designers, regulators, etc. out there who spend every day trying to eliminate issues caused by flooding and attempting to keep our water clean.

19 years ago today, on September, 11, 2001, nearly 3,000 people unknowingly said their final goodbyes to loved ones.

ShearForce 10

Hurricane Isaias put the term “immediate erosion control” to the extreme test on a recent ShearForce install in Eastern, VA. 13,000 sf of ShearForce (a hybrid simulated turf mat) was installed to resolve a slope failure, channel that had blown out, and an emergency spillway with vegetation issues near a substation. The video below showcases the installation, but be sure to check out the comments for a few pictures showing the site after Hurricane Isaias came through with 6” of rainfall and wind gusts of at least 50 mph less than 2 weeks after the installation was completed.

Also, stay tuned for a “How-To” video showcasing how simple ShearForce is to install in a week or two!

The Westport Weston Family YMCA in Connecticut recently installed two new 70-ft “giant slides” for campers. As a part of the installation, the project team required a slope stabilization solution that could be vegetated with grass for the kids. Armormax (a HPTRM that uses engineered earth anchors) was installed under the slides to help protect the newly graded slope and slides from future slope stability and erosion issues. While the pictures show Armormax immediately after the installation, it will soon be fully vegetated.

#TBT to this historic railroad tunnel in Crozet, VA that was constructed between 1850-1858. The completion of the tunnel was considered a major engineering milestone and was the longest tunnel in existence when finished, measuring almost 1 mile long! It’s currently undergoing extensive renovations to be used as a link to networks of other hiking and biking trails. ACBs were recently used at a low-lying area in the trail to help protect it from future washouts and erosion.

Underground Stormwater System Design - Maintenance Needs | ACF

Storage capacity, cost, footprint compatibility, loading requirements – these are some of the key items considered when designing an underground stormwater system. What about ease of maintenance? Keeping maintenance in mind when designing an underground stormwater system can reduce long-term costs by simplifying the maintenance process and also creating a system that is more likely to be maintained properly (increasing it's lifespan and reducing future headaches).

Check out our recent post to learn more about how maintenance considerations can be incorporated into your design.

#ACF #stormwatermanagement #stormwater #stormwaterstorage #urbandevelopment #civilengineering #greeninfrastructure #wheredoesyourraingo

Maintenance is critical to the lifespan of underground stormwater systems - pretreatment, capture systems, back-up plans and access should be considered.

A condo complex in NC was experiencing storm surges causing excessive amounts of sediment in their community pond due to issues with overtopping of the forebay/levee system. ShearForce 10 (a vegetative TRM that offers immediate protection) was used due to its low cost, ease of installation in areas near the levee system (where riprap would require hand placing), and aesthetically pleasing result. This is the first of 3 phases in this project as ShearForce 10 will also be used for emergency spillway and outfall slope applications.
Stay tuned for more updates on this project!

A railroad in western Pennsylvania has a section of the track that sits at the top of an extremely steep slope. It had been eroding away for decades and was in need of a repair to restore stability to the slope. Rock infilled gabions were chosen for their strength, longevity, and permeability. Check out photo of the track from 100 years ago vs now!

After almost 36 years of service, it is with mixed emotions that we announce the retirement of Carl Jones - with today being his last day at ACF. Carl has been with the ACF family since the very beginning – working in roles ranging from warehouse management to sales. Most will remember him for his wealth of product knowledge in Inside Sales, willingness to help anyone, and consistently upbeat and positive attitude. He is an all around class act with the kindest heart and will be missed dearly. Carl – we wish you nothing but the absolute best in your next chapter filled with more time with your family/grandkids, fishing and traveling. Hopefully this isn’t goodbye – and you’ll come back to visit your other family as well! We'll miss you! ❤️🎉

Do you cringe when you see road/bridge construction? Slower traffic, reduced lanes, etc. We do too, but sometimes it's in our best interest!

In Augusta County, an old bridge on Rt. 250 needs to be replaced. This is a heavily trafficked road, so a temporary bridge was required to divert traffic instead of completely closing the road down and angering drivers for a year!

Part of the design for the temporary bridge included a grid reinforced earth stabilization system to provide support and abutment. The system includes a stone infill to fulfill friction angle requirements and keep the bridge stable while the original bridge is rebuilt. Check out the pictures to see how the installation is progressing…
