Lakes & Inland Waterways

Jet Filter maintainable weep hole filters preserve inland lake and river infrastructure by preventing erosion and relieving water pressure,.

Lakes and rivers serve as many communities’ hotspots for boating, travel, swimming, and pleasure. To help protect the existing bodies of water and surrounding land, communities may build river walks, seawalls, bulkheads, block retaining walls, and canals. These bodies of water can be used nearly every day, making it necessary for these infrastructure products to perform well and be safe for everyone around.

Without proper drainage, the public river walks, canals, or lake seawalls may not perform correctly and can lead to accelerated erosion behind the structure. Rivers and lakes are subject to seasonal flooding, this change in water level displaces soil particles and can create substantial hydrostatic pressure on manmade infrastructures. These inland bodies of water also collect much of the groundwater runoff from storms. The rainwater will travel down through the earth, taking the quickest route to the nearest body of water. If a concrete wall, bulkhead, or sheet piling wall does not have the proper solutions to release the water, it will create its own opening, move around the soil, or sit still trapped behind a structure. All three of these problems can expedite the failure of retaining walls.

Causes of structure failure:

  • Lake and river flooding
  • Rainwater runoff
  • Regular public use

The Jet Filter system is ideal for extending the life of inland water structures. This drainage solution attaches to the front side of any retaining wall, allowing for water to weep through into the appropriate body of water. The geotextile fabric cartridge creates a barrier to protect against soil loss and maintains the integrity of backfill material, preserving the infrastructure life. Jet Filter weep holes can be easily accessed and maintained, providing consistent drainage results year to year. For cases of rising water level Jet Filter has one-way flow valves, releasing hydrostatic pressure on one side of the wall while preventing splashback or return flow into or behind the retaining wall.
