Dredged Spoils Shoreline Protection
Southern Dredging & Marine’s environmentally friendly Geotextile tubes and bags are offer quick and easy installation whether above or below the water’s surface.
These geotextile tubes and bags are known as “soft structures” that do not effect the habitat and are much more cost effective than “hard structures” such as rocks or armour accropodes.
Also, GeoTextile Tubes can be hydraulically or mechanically filled in water depths of up to 15 feet, or filled on dry land. They are UV resistant and are especially important to projects where rocks, concrete or other hard structures are in short supply. Using these tubes and bags can add strength to the coastline, help prevent erosion or act as a sand dune.
Our GeoTextile Tubes and Bags have high strength, UV resistant. Because they are “soft” armored structures, permits are usually easier to obtain than hard armored structures. Southern Dredging & Marine Geotextile Tubes have various marine uses including Breakwaters, Dykes, Dune Cores, Revetments, Shoreline, Reefs and Groynes.
