EcoWattle Installation – FM 273, near Bonham, Texas
Customer: D. L. Lennon Construction, Installed by Brock Environmental

These EcoWattles are installed in place of the Type 1 Rock Filter Dams originally specified.  The project is widening the shoulders, with little right of way available. Brock Environmental was concerned with the ability to get the right equipment into the tight areas and the environmental damage installing and removing rock filter dams would cause. EcoWattles in a “pyramid” provided a solution to the installation issues confronting Brock Environmental – with a significantly lower cost to TxDot.  EcoWattles work!!
