An Advanced Revetment Technology Designed to Eliminate Erosion in Mining


HydroTurf® in Mining Applications

Used by mining operations throughout the U.S., the HydroTurf® Revetment System is an advanced, engineered technology designed to provide armoring of hydraulic structures against high velocity and shear stress. It offers the aesthetics of vegetation combined with exceptional performance in comparison to traditional hard armor, such as articulated block, concrete, gabions and riprap. HydroTurf provides a flexible solution for contouring to any site layout and is significantly less costly in both construction and long-term maintenance requirements compared to traditional methods.

HydroTurf establishes long-term erosion control contributing to both environmental standards and ESG corporate benefits. The system is a Best Management Practice (BMP) that results in cleaner storm water runoff. It can also help reduce downstream maintenance of sediment ponds. HydroTurf is an impermeable solution that will greatly reduce contamination of surface and groundwater, ultimately leading to a reduction in costs for water treatment and reduced site liability.

HydroTurf® Benefits Over Traditional Solutions: 

  • Eliminates the need for large construction equipment
  • Reduces truckloads to and from the site
  • Fast installation for rapid stabilization
  • Flexible solution for ongoing settlement
  • Eliminates the need to remove existing concrete structures
  • Significantly improved water quality
  • Easy to implement/incorporate with phased development
  • Offers different style colors to match the natural terrain

HydroTurf®is ideal for:

  • Sites with contaminated stormwater
  • Contaminated sites to prevent contact surface water
  • Remote and difficult access areas
  • Longer, steeper slopes
  • Linear sites
  • Rugged areas with arid climates and acidic soils
  • Relining of concrete channels
  • Sites with challenging storm water conditions


  • Stockpile storage areas
  • Tailings ponds
  • Downchutes and rundowns
  • Spillways
  • Diversion structures
  • Channels and ditches
  • Channel stabilization
  • Outlet structures
  • Detention ponds
