City of Redwood City in the San Francisco Bay Area installed thousands of feet of ShoreGuard Sheet Piling to raise the effective height of their levee. The increased protection from the sustainable and environmentally friendly vinyl sheet piling will save millions of dollars in future insurance premiums...The City of Palo Alto avoided the special insurance by completing improvements to the Matadero Creek Channel in 2004 which included a section of vinyl sheet piling wall...Brown adds that ShoreGuard has developed a patented wide-body profile specifically designed for flood walls and levees, which substantially increases the level of seepage protection and installation speed. Furthermore, Brown comments that additional freeboard gained using sheet piling usually precludes the need for solid fill to be added on top of the levy, which can cause serious damage to wildlife habitats and compromise existing drainage structures. As an added bonus sheet piling seepage structures on levees can also help minimize rodent damage. Crane Materials International (CMI) is part of the Crane Group which was founded in 1947.
