Total Systems Services

This slope had been designed for a concrete block with cable system to stabilize the slope and resist periodic flooding controlled by dams upstream. The client wanted the beauty of a grass reinforced slope to complement the large grass areas between their corporate offices and the river. Installation of Slopetame3 came in at one third the cost of the concrete system, encouraging the Contractor to be able to replace the total area twice if lost to floods, at the same cost. Existing soils consisted mostly of construction debris. Large objects were removed, then a sand cap was place over the slope for uniformity. Slopetame3 was placed and anchored with Duckbill anchors looped over lengths of rebar laid between rows of rings, alternating direction along the slope. Sand was used to fill the Slopetame3 surface, and then overlaid with Bermuda grass sod. Roots reached a depth of about 6” within one month. Slopetame3 withstood two floods - a ten year flood, 24.4 ft (March 2001) and a 100 year flood at 38.53 ft. (May 2003). “It nice to know you don't have to worry about your riverbank washing away" – Debbie Avery, TSY
