Waverley Colliery Reclamation

 C350
C350 will permanently reinforce the vegetation preventing scour during flood events

A large drainage channel designed to take flows of up to 3m/sec was created to take runoff water from a 741 acre site at Waverley, one of Europe’s biggest collieries.

C350 was installed throughout the channel as a direct alternative to gabion mattresses. The C350 will permanently reinforce the vegetation preventing scour during flood events.

In order to satisfy engineers’ requirements, ECMDS software can be utilised (Erosion Control Materials Design Software) in order to fully guarantee and professionally indemnify the solution.

More information on the design software or alternatively contact Salix for further help and advice.
