iGET team is providing Biotechnical Soil Stabilization solutions for Harris County Flood Control District for the White Oak Bayou Channel. Design is in progress. Our Principal Engineer has demonstrated Biotechnical Stabilization and Earth Reinforcement for 1,000 feet of eroded streambank in North Arlington (Tributary WFA-1 to the Trinity River). Methods involved:
Bio-technical stabilization measures and
Reinforced earth technology.
Scope of services included
Determining the creek’s hydraulic characteristics;
Backwater and floodplain modeling;
Attaining required 404 permitting;
Designing and specifying stabilization processes; and,
Delineating easement boundaries,
Attaining necessary topography, and providing records of final construction drawings.
Providing construction oversight responsibilities.
Special requirements for this project included; protection of an existing sanitary sewer line; establishing a natural channel environment; slope stabilization of the channel embankment; and, restoring the stream bank to its original hydraulic state and verifying the backwater model results.
