Prevent Soil Erosion With An Open Channel Flume
A culvert is an open structure that allows water to flow underneath an obstruction such as a road, railway, or trail. It is typically embedded, meaning that it is surrounded by soil, keeping it secured. However, when water exits the culvert, it inevitably causes erosion of the soil around and underneath the mouth of the culvert. This can result in significant consequences for the local environment. But an open channel flume can go a long way in mitigating this damage.
How A Culvert Flume Works
A culvert flume, also known as a culvert sock, is a specially shaped, human-made channel that is used to control the flow of low to medium pressure water.
It is usually made using a high-quality virgin polyethylene with a high UV rating. That allows it to stand up against the effects of weather and climate, even in Australia’s harsh environment.
By installing a flume at the end of your culvert, you can redirect the outflow of water to a preferred exit point, which makes a big difference in preventing soil erosion.
