D&H Enviro News:
D&H successfully completed a Gabion Mattress Project in El Paso, TX. The project took over three months to complete. A total of over 3,200 tons of rock were used. Over 1,200 linear feet of Rip Rap was utilized for channeling. D&H moved over 6,000 yards of existing soil to grade the area for the Gabion Mattresses.
Gabions are commonly used for civil engineering projects to stabilize slopes against erosion control. Advantages of using Gabions include:
• Resistance to being washed away by moving water.
• Naturally conform to subsidence.
• Dissipated energy from the flow of water.
• Strength and effectiveness increases over time as silt and vegetation fill cages.
