How to protect construction projects against erosion and sedimentation?

Erosion and sediment control are crucial aspects of any construction or land development project. Without proper measures in place, soil erosion and sediment runoff can cause significant damage to the environment, including water pollution, loss of vegetation, and damage to nearby infrastructure. One effective way to protect against erosion and sediment runoff is through the use of a concrete cloth such as COLETANCHE, a bituminous geomembrane.

Erosion control refers to the various techniques used to prevent soil erosion, while sediment control is the practice of managing the movement of sediment from construction sites. These measures are necessary to protect the surrounding environment.

COLETANCHE® is a bituminous geomembrane waterproofing system, unique in terms of its 5.10m width. It associates an elastomeric bitumen-based binder and an internal structure made from non-woven polyester geotextile; it is designed to guarantee excellent mechanical and chemical resistance over the long term.

How does COLETANCHE protect against Erosion and Sediment Control?

When used in conjunction with other erosion and sediment control measures, a bituminous geomembrane can be an effective tool in protecting against erosion and sediment runoff. Because it is impermeable, it prevents water and other liquids from infiltrating the underlying soil, which can help to prevent erosion and sediment runoff.

Bituminous geomembranes can be particularly effective in areas where the soil is unstable or where there is a high risk of erosion or sediment runoff. For example, they are often used in areas where construction is taking place near waterways or other sensitive environmental areas.

In addition to providing an impermeable barrier, bituminous geomembranes are also highly durable and can withstand a wide range of environmental conditions. This makes them an ideal choice for construction projects where long-term protection against erosion and sediment control is required.
