Advice for Your Waterfront Project

Waterfront projects, or "Sea Walls," provide a unique and beautiful way to incorporate bank containment and erosion control along various water applications. When considering the use of Diamond® on such an application, remember that each is unique and must be given special thought and planning when designing.

The keys to successful waterfront projects are a level base and proper installation. Achieving an adequately compacted and level base is dependent upon the site's soil conditions. Once a solid and compacted foundation is reached, units can be buried. In some instances,

a poured concrete foundation is possible. In all applications, the use of filter fabrics help prevent backfill leaching through or contamination. For high velocity flows, the base should be protected with an acceptable material, such as rip-rap. In addition to protecting the footing, materials such as rip-rap also help "lift" ice.

To date, segmental retaining walls have performed well in waterfront applications including lakefront properties and pond bank containment on golf courses and residential developments. If you are interested in additional information, contact Marshall Hill Materials at (973) 728-8300.
