DRAINAGE CHANNEL EROSION CONTROL APPLICATION—ARMORMAX®
The Reinland Drain is a municipal drainage channel in south Eastern Manitoba that holds and drains intermittent water flow from regional spring melt/breakup and peak discharge events. Failing rip rap rock from heavy run-off flows had been causing reoccurring erosion of the channel slopes—an on-going problem spanning 75 years. The RM of Stanley was looking for a superior longer-term erosion control solution and engaged Stantec’s engineering services. After a series of consultations with Stantec, Titan proposed the ARMORMAX® Engineered Earth Armoring System which is an advanced flexible armoring solution designed specifically for severe erosion challenges. The application involved installation of gabion baskets on the base floor and a total of 38,000 m² of ARMORMAX® on the channel slopes.
