Road Drainage Systems with Typar Geotextile

Overview To manage surface and ground water for road network, subsurface drains are built with a permeable conduit such as corrugated plastic, geonet, tubing, tile, stone, pipe or any combination installed beneath the ground surface to collect and/or convey drainage water to an outlet. Effective subsurface drains are essential to prevent the harmful and destructive […]

Coastal Protection
