Why Dam, Dike and Levee Restoration?
A variety of factors can degrade levees, dams, and dikes, but one of the most common issues is supporting soil loss. When continuous water movement washes out base soils, voids begin to develop below and around the structure. This can create sinkholes, soil settlement, and breaches. Central to EagleLIFT’s dam, dike and levee restoration success is our co-polymer material. This high density, expanding polymer offers superior advantages over less effective traditional methods and materials.
- When injected, can expand up to 25 times its liquid volume
- Displaces trapped water and is not compromised by wet conditions during or after installation
- Densifies upon injection, cutting installation time
- Weighs less than 10 percent of a comparable quantity of cementitious-based grouts
- Adds minimal weight to a project area, reducing the burden on already distressed soils
Our marine structure rehabilitation method protects against those issues by injecting a high-density, structural polyurethane chemical grout into the base soils surrounding an impacted dam, levee, and dike through 3/4” metal rods. Once injected, the polyurethane chemical grout expands through all of the voids and into the soil. This works to:
- Fill voids
- Stabilize soils
- Seal cracks
- Connect misaligned joints
During the dam & levees repair, EagleLIFT does not excavate soil or replace materials in the impacted marine infrastructure. Our process is fast-acting, nondestructive, and environmentally safe. The polyurethane chemical grout is inert, and is neither chemically nor biologically reactive and will not decompose. It’s ideal for the following applications:
- Bulkhead repair
- Marine infrastructure lifting, stabilization, and sealing
- Seawall repair
- Dam repair
- Shoreline foundation repair
- Environmental containment
- Marine infrastructure replacement avoidance
