Lake Bank Erosion
Protecting your lakes
Lake bank erosion damages and deteriorates the shape, depth and form of the affected area. This occurs due to the continuous lapping of water against the edge of the bank, which causes particles of soil to break away from its foundation. Adverse weather conditions can cause even greater damage to surrounding land.
Bank erosion is the leading cause of shoreline destruction. If not properly cared for, it can lead to loss of land, unstable environments and maintenance issues for homeowners, commercial managers and golf course owners.
The best method for prevention
The best time to prevent lake bank erosion is during the build phase where we sod or plant directly through the knitted mesh to revegetate the bank and shoreline. However, more often than not we find that our services are required when the erosion has already occurred, whether it’s in the early stages, or when significant erosion is present.
Our DredgeSOX and ShoreSOX systems have the innate ability to repair eroding lake banks through its patented, design-friendly technical mesh and anchoring system. Easy to install, they provide almost immediate control of lakeside areas under threat.
