slope repair and armoring erosion control jackson ms

If you’ve ever faced a landslide or mudslide, you know full well the catastrophe that results from such erosion events. Slow weathering and sudden natural disasters alike can cause steep slopes to erode and slide, damaging surrounding land and life. Slope repair and armoring are essential erosion control solutions for sloped areas, helping repair the damaging effects of erosion and preventing further erosion. These techniques involve the implementation of various erosion control measures and structural reinforcements to stabilize the slope.

Why Have Armoring and Slope Repair?

There are various reasons that armoring and slope repair are used to repair and slow or prevent the process of erosion. The main purposes of armoring are to stabilize the area, control erosion, and provide long-term protection. 

Armoring for Stabilization: Slopes tend to erode quickly and are prone to landscapes, mudslides, and slumps which greatly impact the surrounding environment, wildlife, roads, and structures. Slope repair and armoring techniques aim to stabilize the slope and prevent further erosion. The armoring provides structural reinforcements to hold the soil in place and reduce the risk of slope failure.

Armoring and Slope Repair for Erosion Control: By implementing slope repair and armoring measures, erosion is controlled and minimized. These techniques reduce the impact of erosive forces such as rainfall, surface runoff, and the impact of wind, preventing the loss of topsoil and protecting the slope’s overall integrity.

Long-Term Protection from Slope Erosion: Armoring solutions are ultimately designed for long-term protection of slopes and steep hillsides that are prone to erosion and degrading. As such, Mid-State Erosion Control installs slope armors that are durable and long-lasting, intended to stand up to various elements, ensuring the stability and longevity of the slope over time.

Slope Repair Methods and Armoring Applications

Armoring applications and slope repair techniques can be used to rebuild slopes and then control slope erosion for bigger hillsides, road construction areas, gravel construction roads, boat ramps and launches, channels, basins, overflow areas, bridge abutments, parking areas, roads, pipelines, river or stream banks, shorelines, and steep slopes, to name a few.

There are several common methods of achieving this long-lasting erosion control and slope stabilization and Mid-State Erosion Control can take care of every type. We will first come and meet with you to assess your area and discuss your needs in order to determine the best course of action. We may utilize any number of common armoring applications, all designed to give your land long-lasting stability and erosion control. These armoring techniques include riprap, terracing, bench systems, geosynthetic reinforcements, vinyl pilings, interlocking concrete blocks, gabions, plastic channel liners, soil-filled bags, concrete infill, soil nailing, bioengineering techniques (vegetation), and more!
