GCCM Culvert Installation How-To Article Featured in Water & Wastes Digest

This month, Water & Wastes Digest published an article by John Hepfinger that detailed step-by-step instructions on how to install a geosynthetic cementitious composite mat (GCCM) in a culvert.

 A GCCM functions as a new wear surface for culvert inverts and as an erosion control measure for the culvert’s surroundings. Over time, the invert of a culvert degrades from both corrosion and abrasion because of constant exposure to water and soil particle transport. A GCCM can be installed by an internal team to line the bottom of the culvert and extend the life of the structure, which makes it easier to prioritize annual spending until a full replacement is eventually needed.
