Harold Court Service Center’s case history will be described in detail within the IECA four-day industry rendezvous.
Maccaferri is pleased to announce that will be presenting a paper at the 2016 IECA Environmental Connection Conference, Feb 16-19 in San Antonio (Texas). IECA (International Erosion Control Association) yearly holds the Environmental Connection event, which is a flagship annual full-immersion experience where hundreds of brilliant professionals participate with the aim of getting updated about the erosion control, sediment control and stormwater industry.
The paper is titled “Reinforced Soil Slope at the Harold Court East Regional Service Center Austin, TX: Design and Construction, and contains a full description of a City-owned multi-purpose facility shared by multiple departments including Public Works, Watershed Protection, Fleet Services and the Austin Water Utility. Unstable slopes on the western and southern boundaries of the property have resulted in periodic movement of the embankment. Therefore, Maccaferri’s intervention was required in order to protect this important infrastructure.
The project improvements included slope controls constructed on the eroding embankment along the western and southern perimeters of the facility to prevent further migration of the material into the nearby creek. The slope controls consists of multiple rows of Maccaferri Terramesh System walls, separated by vegetative terraces with a service road to provide access to the proposed bio-filtration pond. The project improvements also include repairs and upgrades to the existing storm sewer system currently serving the facility and a water quality treatment system.
