Slopes and embankments pose an erosion risk to many industries and organizations across the country. Construction sites, mining, airfields, golf courses, military, transportation, and historical sites, to name a few, can all be affected by eroding slopes.
A slope failure is a natural threat and is referred to as the downslope movement of rock debris and soil in response to gravitational stresses. Slope failures are classified according to the type of downslope movement: falls, slides and slows. A slop failure can be caused by many different factors a few of the usual suspects being the steepness of a slop, drainage, vegetation, or other changes to the original site from mining, irrigation, or even truck traffic.
To stop the damage of a potential slope failure, it is crucial that proper steps are taken to prevent this from occurring. That is where slope stabilization comes in. By definition, “slope stability refers to the condition of inclined soil or rock slopes to withstand or undergo movement.” Slope stability is based on the interaction of both driving and resisting forces. Driving forces encourage the downslope movement of slope material, while as the name suggests, resisting forces literally resist movement.
Advantages of Slope Stabilization:
If the area in question is at risk of a slop failure, or simply has a slope or embarkment that may pose a threat, you need to implement a slope stabilization technique. Environmental Products & Applications, Inc. provide cost-effective and dependable solutions to increase stability of slopes and embankments. From stabilizing failing slopes to creating new slopes, EP&A, Inc. is your trusted partner.
Our Envirotac line of dust control polymers are environmentally compliant and will make your areas dust free, while strengthening the soil fabric, increasing the compressive strength and the load bearing capabilities of the soil. This will decrease labor cost, equipment repairs, improve air quality, and lower the carbon footprint. We have been on the ground for decades and have developed the best formulations and designed the best application rates.
