How to save $80,000 with Eco-Filter Tube?
Another engineer proposed remedy from seepage and washouts by utilizing backfill and drainage on each lot. In addition Geotube™ had to protect the shoreline from wave action.
After our firm evaluated the backfill option – we found out that additional costs had to be involved for dewatering, because soil could not be compacted under water. Vibratory roller could not be used for compaction due to capillary rise and soil liquification. Heavy roller could not be used on top of 2:1 slope for safety reasons. The proposed tube could easily be undermined during low water condition or washed out during high water events. On top of all those issues the price of proposed drainage installation was approximately $600 per lot.
The site hydrology analysis performed by our scientists revealed, that washing out of fine particles under the tube would only occurred if low water table elevation were below the tube. Infiltration of surface water around a lake reach the cone of depression and then moves in almost horizontal direction towards the lake, causing seepage and failure of loose soil in the lake bank. Geosynthetic material retains fine particles but allow good percolation and does not result in hydrostatic pressure, which makes drainage unnecessary.
Using Eco-filter Tube brand which is specifically engineered for required tensile strength with proper geometry and placement - allowed our firm to cut the costs and save for the owner $80,000 on this particular project.
