Erosion Control: The Er-Con Technologies' Advantage
What Separates Er-Con Technologies From The Others?
The two most common mistakes made in controlling erosion are (1) targeting efforts toward the result of the erosion rather than the causative agent and (2) inappropriately adapting simple “out of the textbook” solutions to complex situations. Many of the subtleties are missed in this type design and will produce devastating flaws in the remediation efforts. An appropriate design will result in minimal or no maintenance while eliminating high risk.
Each solution needs to be addressed as site specific. A review of the site from both a geomorphic and a hydraulic point of view is necessary to determine the root cause. Once established is it possible to design the best solution for the site, or if a remediation is even practical. Many times doomed remediation attempts are directed at sites where the pipeline should be lowered. Using Er-Con Technologies’ available resources and experience, we can frequently substantiate and safely extend the life of an existing crossing which represents a substantial asset.
Er-Con Technologies’ Process:
How Er-Con Technologies Is Different:
Implementation – The Construction Process
Er-Con Technologies is the premier construction company, Its defining characteristic is our mats are sewn to be site-specific at our Houston location and pumped-in-place to guarantee the best remediation. This option is far superior to transporting a pre-cast product on 18 wheelers at a significant expense to the Client. The crews then mobilize in work trucks loaded with the sewn mat and basic equipment needed for installation. Coordination with local companies allows for incredible freedom, flexibility and mobility, adding to Er-Con Technologies’ superiority in its product and provision of erosion solutions.
Monitor – Ensure the Product’s Construction
Er-Con Technologies is confident in the quality of our construction and the product’s ability to withstand high velocity events. As an available option, Er-Con Technologies offers a post-construction monitoring program if requested.
In addition to the standard training, select members of each crew are TWIC Card holders, have participated in defensive driving courses focused on construction equipment and railroad safety compliance
Er-Con Technology’s goal is to provide our client’s with the best site-specific design that will protect their asset and protect the environment all while falling within the client’s financial constraints.
