muscle wall

  • Muscle Wall is a portable barrier used to contain or divert water. Applications include: flood control, storm water management, containment, erosion control and levee elevation.
  • Muscle Wall is designed as a rapid deployment system for emergencies, but can also be used long term.

SOX erosion solutions

  • SOX designs, manufactures and distributes patented bio-engineered erosion control systems that halt shoreline and hillside erosion while promoting vegetation.
  • SOXfence® is often used on projects with steep slopes and erodible soils to reduce water encroachment, retain sediment and act as a containment barrier.

In recent years, wildfires have burned millions of acres in the US West and destroys the stabilizing vegetation. This creates the potential for destructive mudslides. After the devastating 2020 Creek Fire that scorched the Sierra Nevada near Yosemite National Park, ENGEO participated in the installation of SOXfence to reduce post-fire erosion. Additionally, as a result of shoreline erosion and wave attack along a beach near Dana Point in Southern California, ENGEO evaluated the use of Muscle Wall and DuneSOX to protect homes against coastal flooding.

ENGEO celebrated its 50th anniversary last year with milestones that include a 143% increase in employees over the past 10 years. The geoscience engineering firm has worked on a wide range of public and private projects ranging from GHADs, transportation, disaster response, schools, major sports venues, housing estates and museums, among a wide range of other projects.
