Red Run Improvements

A large $5.1-million project is underway to reduce pollution and sedimentation
in the Red Run Drain, the Clinton River and Lake St. Clair.

Erosion Control

Nonwoven geotextile fabric for separation and underlayment
provides erosion control material. It effectively separates two layers
of soil that have differing physical properties
i.e. (grain size distribution, consistency, density)
and prevents fine particles under stress from migrating.
This compacts the soil creating a stable environment for vegetation growth.
It’s often used as an underlayment for embankments. The GT180 fabric is made from
100% needle punched polypropylene. It is also sunlight UV and decay resistant.
These features provide for successful vegetation growth..
