Remediating a Concrete Flume in a Hydroelectric System

In August 2017, a Concrete Canvas® Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM) was used to remediate a dilapidated concrete flume, which was part of a hydroelectric system in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. A civil general inspection conducted a few years prior to the remediation found the flume to be in poor condition in significant areas. A few small localized repairs were carried out in 201... »
