  • Types of Turbidity Curtains

    When a company digs a trench to install pipelines, the flow of water should be a significant concern. This is the case for companies installing pipes underwater as well as those installing pipelines on land. If companies fail to account for this, pipeline exposure may grow into a severe problem. Pipeline exposure tends to be costly in both time and money. One of the options to reduce the risk of pipeline exposure is the use of a turbidity curtain. Continue reading Types of Turbidity Curtains at […]

  • Types of Sediment Barriers

    Since the 1800s, sedimentation rates have increased by as much as 500 percent. Taking preventative streambank stabilization measures could help to cut long-term costs significantly and should be considered a worthwhile investment in any project. Below are some of the barriers used for streambank stabilization.   Sediment Retention Fiber Roll   The concept behind sediment retention fiber rolls has been around for years, but it is only within the past decade that their efficiency has […]

  • Temporary Seeding and Revegetation Can Help with Streambank Stabilization

    When a job site is disturbed, it is crucial that appropriate measures are taken to address streambank stabilization. Failure to do so could cause significant project delays and end up costing millions of dollars in repairs. Two of the most straightforward methods available to help with streambank stabilization are temporary seeding and revegetation. nbsp; What Is Temporary Seeding?   Temporary seeding is the process of creating a temporary vegetative cover to help to reduce erosion and […]

  • Submar Lexicon: Riprap

    When working with Submar, you will hear the company use several terms relevant to the pipeline erosion control industry. If you ever come across a term with which you are not familiar, Submar invites you to ask questions, as they are happy to help you learn more about pipeline erosion control.

  • Submar Lexicon: Headcut

    When discussing pipeline erosion control measures for a project, one of the terms that Submar is likely to use is “headcut.”   Headcut Definition   Headcuts are streams that have a sudden vertical drop, otherwise known as the knickpoint. When evaluating headcuts, the Submar team considers the knickpoint to be the beginning of the cut.   Signs of a Headcut   On a large scale, a waterfall is a type of headcut. Continue reading Submar Lexicon: Headcut at Submar. […]

  • Prevent Pipeline Erosion with Sediment Basins and Flexible Down Drains

    When digging a new pipeline, one of the biggest struggles for companies seems to be preventing pipeline erosion. Pipeline erosion is a problem that can become painstakingly difficult to overcome, forcing companies to drain their resources in search of finding a solution. One of the answers to help to prevent pipeline erosion is the use of sediment basins and flexible down drains.   What Is A Flexible Down Drain?   A flexible down drain is a type of heavy duty fabric or material that […]

  • Pipeline Erosion Control Tools: Trench Plugs, Dewatering, and Diversion Ditches

    When digging for a new pipeline, one of the most significant concerns is pipeline erosion. Pipeline erosion could grow to be an incredibly expensive problem if preventative action is not taken. Here are three tools to consider: • Trench Plugs • Dewatering • Diversion Ditches Below is a breakdown of the three methods along with an explanation of how they could to be beneficial in preventing pipeline erosion. Continue reading Pipeline Erosion Control Tools: Trench Plugs, […]

  • Permanent Restoration Measures Could Prevent Pipeline Exposure Remediation

    Once you have completed a pipeline installation project, Submar recommends investing in permanent restoration measures to reduce the need for future pipeline exposure remediation, which can be costly.   Grading and Backfill   Once construction of a pipeline is complete, permanent restoration measures can begin. One of the ways to do so is re-grading slopes and backfilling trenches. This can include adding soil to any land that eroded during the construction process and refilling areas […]

  • Non-Vegetative Soil Stabilization Options

    Job sites can vary significantly, and project managers must take the time to evaluate which pipeline erosion control measures would be most useful to ensure that soil is stable and that their pipeline does not become exposed. One of the most natural methods available is the use of vegetation, as plants help to absorb water and prevent runoff. Unfortunately, not every job site can use vegetative options, and some projects require alternative measures to protect pipelines from the threat of […]
