Neoloy® Geocells Reduces Risk of Flooding

Neoloy helps to meet today's guidelines mandating stormwater management strategies based on Low Impact Development (LID).

Today’s guidelines mandate stormwater management strategies based on Low Impact Development (LID). LID seeks to mitigate the impact of surface water discharges, improve runoff quality, reduce the risk of flooding and augment potable water resources.

Neoloy Geocells from PRS help to meet LID goals to conserve green space and natural resources in South Africa, while implementing advanced water management policies. Neoloy turf reinforcement in the structural layers of grass parking lots, gravel roads or paving block systems can reduce stormwater by maximizing infiltration, thereby reducing runoff while filtering pollutants.

In addition, reinforcement with Neoloy Geocells significantly increases the service life of all types of green and permeable pavement structures. This reduces operational and maintenance costs, while lowering the total cost of ownership.Typical permeable applications include residential areas, parking lots, maintenance and emergency access and road or runway shoulders with concrete pavers or turf surface cover.
