Presto Geosystems: Prevent Soil Erosion on Railroad Slopes & Channels

Presto Geosystems


Embankments adjacent to track are prone to erosion problems that can cause costly downtime for repair. The GEOWEB 3D system stabilizes and protects surface layer soils from severe erosion, slides and washouts with either vegetation, aggregate or hard-armored concrete.  GEOWEB gravity/reinforced MSE walls are flexible MSE structures for rail embankments and landscape change-in-grade that perform well over soft soils. For control of stormwater, GEOWEB channels replace costly, high maintenance rip-rap with low-environmental impact solutions that meet site drainage requirements.
