When extreme weather events occur, communities are often left to grapple with the devastating effects. An increase in extreme weather patterns, coupled with aging or inadequate infrastructure, amplifies the often dangerous and costly damage that ensues—especially for vulnerable communities living in low-lying areas. This webinar will discuss how to incorporate GEOWEB® geocells into projects to create climate-resistant infrastructure in load support, slope stabilization, channel protection, and retaining wall applications.
The discussion will include solutions for an array of industries, including energy, transportation, and stormwater management. Project case studies will show how this advanced geosynthetic technology can be used for rebuilding storm-ravaged roads, repairing and stabilizing channel embankments, and preventing flooding after extreme weather events.
Webinar’s Learning Objectives:
- Gain an understanding of the innovative ways the GEOWEB® geocells can provide permanent stabilization solutions for a variety of applications.
- Understand how geocells perform in the most challenging soil conditions.
- Learn about projects using the GEOWEB® geocells to improve infrastructure resilience.
- Learn how the GEOWEB® geocells can help manage stormwater and mitigate flooding.
