Dams, Ports & Waterways

Along with our design experience, the characteristics of our MSE Walls and our other retaining wall products make them ideal for water applications. With the proper design considerations for backfill, hydraulic loads, and extreme events, these structures have proven to have the ability to function as a complete dam or reservoir, as well as provide a more specific role integrated into a larger dam or waterway system. Some of our earliest dam and water projects in the 1970’s and 1980’s are continuing to demonstrate the excellent durability of these systems.
