Erosion Threatens Parking Structure in Posh Downtown Dallas. Contractor Uses TerraThane™ to Save the Structure and the Owner Millions of Dollars

Erosion of the soil around in-ground parking garages causes major problems and can cost plenty to fix. A small case of erosion can quickly cause silt infiltration that overwhelms and clogs the drainage system, thus causing more and worse erosion until the entire structure is threatened.

Erosion around a three-story, in-ground parking garage in Dallas’ “Uptown” area and home to some of the city’s posh apartments, business addresses, shopping, hotels, restaurants and bars, created a large void in the soil surrounding the piers and gave the developer serious headaches.
