Dams, levees and basins are used to collect, store, direct and convey surface water in a controlled manner and/or protect life and property during flooding events. Reliable dams and levees are necessary for public safety, providing flood control and protection for people and property. They are an important part of our energy framework with dams generating hydroelectric power and levees protecting many power plant facilities. They are critical to the viability of our overall public infrastructure network, protecting other infrastructure including railroads, roads, and water and wastewater treatment facilities. The failure of a dam or levee can pose one of the most significant hazards to life safety, protection of property and/or natural resources.
At Synthetex, we understand the constant challenge of managing, protecting and conserving water resources to meet the future needs of communities, agriculture, industry and the environment.
