Lauderhill Canal Reinforcement

Case study

By

Many residents in the City of Lauderhill, Miami-Ft. Lauderdale-Pompano Beach area, faced repeated erosion to their backyards along Lauderhill Canal filled with high, fast flowing waters caused by heavy rains. Shoreline Foundation Inc. deployed 602 QUIKRETE® SlingBags® underwater containing 23,473 60 lb bags of QUIKRETE® Rip Rap along the banks of the canal to eliminate future issues with water erosion.

The combination of these two prod- uct systems provides reinforcement to the Lauderhill Canal that local residents can be confident will last for years to come. SlingBags® is a heavy duty woven polypropylene fabric tote with four 24” polyester lifting loops that holds 56-60 lb burlap bags designed to efficiently and safely store, move and place the bags for erosion control and underwater pipe stabilization, protection and separation.

QUIKRETE® Rip Rap is a high strength, 5,000 PSI blend of sand and cement packaged in a polyester reinforced biodegradable paper bag designed to set in a water inversion to ambient moisture alone. To improve the wall’s vertical stability 3/8’ rebar staples were driven into the bags alternating direction from tier to tier.
