Reinforced Earth dams

Using the Reinforced Earth® technology when building earthen dams reduces or eliminates the need for slopes downstream from the structures and thereby helps the project save money.

The Reinforced Earth® method can be used to build a dam spillway with the sill at the very crest of the structure, preventing expensive gates and other flood control structures that would otherwise be required in addition to the dam.
