CC used for emergency river repair

21 October 2019


An emergency repair solution was required for Suemasagawa river in Japan. The levee was originally protected using concrete blocks; however, a heavy flood had damaged the blocks and immediate repair was needed to prevent further collapse.

The client opted to use sand-filled bulk bags to rebuild the river banks. CC was then chosen as a protective liner, covering the bulk bags to prevent erosion and add additional measures to prevent flooding.

CC was chosen specifically as it could be installed quickly and easily despite limited access to the site.
