September 2015

The leaves in New England are beginning to change and at NETCO we have a full slate of projects for the upcoming months. As usual, the summer is a quieter time as our clients enjoy their beaches and coastal properties.

We hope you enjoyed your summer and that you'll also enjoy our first fall newsletter. We're enthusiastic about introducing Elcorock, and new product that provides an additional option for coastal erosion project. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback!

New for NETCO

For a number of years, NETCO has used biodegradable coir envelope systems in coastal stabilization projects in New England. While we will continue to install coir systems to protect and restore the shoreline, we are about to begin a revetment project using a new product at White Cliffs Country Club in Plymouth, MA.

Developed over the last 25 years, Elcorock containers consist of highly durable non-woven, needle punched staple fiber geotextiles. The Elcorock containers are manufactured by Geofabrics Australasia Pty., Ltd. Enhanced filtration combined with resistance to abrasion and UV damage makes this material ideal for coastal applications. Elcorock installations are highly stabile and durable in turbulent coastal environments even under the harshest of conditions.
