US Army Uses Mirafi Products To Solve Levee Issues On The Gulf Coast

The Gulf Coast of the United States is one of the most challenging and vulnerable environments in the world. This area of the country requires dependable dike and levee solutions that consistently perform under the most extreme conditions. When the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) needed to build a rock dike at the Calcasieu River in Louisiana, TenCateTM Geosynthetics provided innovative productsthat greatly lowered initial construction and annual maintenance costs, and provided a long-term globally stable foundation.

TenCateTM Geosynthetics North America develops and produces materials that increase performance, reduce costs and enable people to achieve what was once unachievable. TenCateTM geosynthetic products are used in civil engineering projects worldwide. As the worldwide leader in geosynthetics, TenCateTM develops products that guarantee the stability of large-scale construction projects such as dams, dikes and roads.
