SAN RAMON, Calif., Jan. 13, 2022 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- ENGEO has incorporated the latest innovative set of products, Muscle Wall and SOX Erosion Solutions, into a wide range of expanding environmental challenges such as flooding, sea level rise and post-fire erosion. The most comprehensive geoscience engineering firm in the world utilizes these products to augment disaster recovery services that it provides to cities, counties, homeowner's associations, geologic hazard abatement districts (GHADs) and individual residences.

"The strategic use of Muscle Wall and the family of SOX Erosion Solutions products, combined with ENGEO's comprehensive geotechnical expertise, can help mitigate the impact of wildfires, flooding and erosion for the clients and communities we serve," said Uri Eliahu, ENGEO's president and CEO.

SOX Erosion Solutions

In recent years, wildfires have burned through millions of acres in the Western United States and destroyed stabilizing vegetation. This creates the potential for destructive mudflows. After the devastating 2020 Creek Fire that burned through the Sierra Nevada near Yosemite National Park, ENGEO helped install SOXfence to reduce post-fire erosion. Also, following shoreline erosion and wave attack along a stretch of beach near Dana Point in Southern California, ENGEO evaluated the use of Muscle Wall and DuneSOX to protect homes against coastal flooding.

ENGEO celebrated its 50th anniversary last year with milestones that include a 143% employee increase over the past 10 years. The geoscience engineering firm has worked on a wide range of public and private projects that range from GHADs, transportation, disaster response, schools, major sporting venues, housing developments and museums, among an extensive array of other projects.
