Scour Stop™

scour stopScour Stop transition mats mechanically protect the soil at an outlet from scour until the shear forces of the water flow are diminished by the expansion of the water by laminar flow. Scour is the erosion at a water outlet and is compounded by the increasing velocity of the water as it rapidly expands from the confined pipe out into a channel.

As an alternative to rip-rap Scour Stop™ enables the use of turf reinforcement mats above, around and downstream from the outlet, creating a vegetated end treatment for outlets of all sizes.
