Flexamat - Territorial Drive


Flexamat solves silt & sediment runoff challenges in Saskatchewan

North Battleford is a city in west-central Saskatchewan located directly across the North Saskatchewan River from the town of Battleford. Together, the two communities are known as "The Battlefords". 

The problem? The city of North Battleford was looking for a green hard armour to help prevent silt and sediment from running into the North Saskatchewan River. 

The solution? Flexamat.

Project Details


Erosion was occuring during heavy rain events and spring run-off along Highway 16.  This section of the highway serves as the main collector for run-off before it discharges into the North Saskatchewan River.  Flexamat was chosen as an alternate to rock rip rap.

The images above demonstrate how Flexamat slowed the water down and trapped the silt and sediment.  There is also vegetation growing through the Flexamat which creates a "green hard armour".
