Palisade River Training System: Proctor Creek, Fulton County, GA
The natural flow of the creek had encroached into the pipeline right-of-way. This natural lateral migration caused approximately 120’ of pipeline to become exposed following high velocity events in conjunction with the normal flow and erosion of the creek bed and bank. This type of exposure clearly threatens the integrity of the pipeline, but more importantly, the health of the downstream environment.

System 21 Pipeline Protection Mat: Dowlin Forge Road, Chester County, PA
General bed scour over the years left this 8” pipe exposed to the elements. The pipe was at risk of rock impact during high velocity events. The client requested an environmentally friendly pipeline protection option that would protect the line with minimal impact to the ambient environment. The picturesque site mandated high environmental attention to maintain aesthetic integrity. Click here to see how Er-Con Technologies rectified the bed degradation.
Palisade River Training System: Casey Creek, Adair County, KY
Recent high velocity flow events along the creek caused excessive and unexpected lateral migration into the pipeline ROW. In a single event, 20’ of additional pipeline was exposed and extended the amount of free span. The migration trend of the river was threatening and additional 100’ of the pipeline ROW. The aggressive degradation of the bank made this project an urgent repair. Such exposures threatens the pipeline integrity and the health of the downstream environment.
