Highway 897 ditches were heavily eroded; left untreated, this can cause major problems. Alberta Transportation contacted Clearflow for a solution. No outside seed was to be used, so Clearflow tested Soil Lynx tackification properties with soil and Lynx Treated Soil Stabilization Fabric while vegetation growth occurred “naturally.” Returning to the site in June of the following year revealed the establishment of local grasses within the reclaimed area. Soil Lynx was a success.
On Highway 400 an overpass was being constructed. With spring rain and runoff starting to become an issue, Clearflow was called in to protect a nearby stream. Lynx Treated Soil Stabilization Fabric and Soil Lynx were used to enhance existing BMPs. Within 24 hours a large rain event occurred and Soil Lynx was put to the test. The results were amazing. The next day the project manager decided to add Soil Lynx to the areas previously untreated.
This mine has limited access to potable water and has safety requirement needs to maintain a certain level of water stored on-site for fire suppression. Clearflow was engaged to assist in looking for alternatives for recycling of on-site water which could be used instead of potable water for the fire suppression.
A suitable water source was found and the samples were tested determine the optimum Water Lynx product and process to use for removing the solids. Clearflow’s Patented PR5 System and WL 360 and WL494 Water Lynx Blocks would be the best and most cost effective method for treatment.
With Clearflow’s solution in place the mine was able to:
