Old Need.. New Technology

For decades, sand bags have served as the universal device for erosion control and many other uses. But with new federal, state, and local clean water and storm water regulation, sand and gravel bags can create as many problems as they may solve. Eco-Blok™ solves those problems.

Please note that in many project specifications, Eco-Blok™ products may be referred to as water diversion blocks or water control blocks or erosion control blocks.

What Makes Eco-Blok™ Special

Unlike sand bags which break and fall apart, Eco-Blok™ is a precision manufactured product that will last for years. It can be stacked, glued, and staked in place. Its patent pending design allows Eco-Bloks™ to be interlocked and re-used over and over again to solve your erosion control problems.

Eco-Blok™ is Friendly to the Environment

Each year, tens of millions of waste tires are dumped in land fills across the country. Each Eco-Blok™ is made from 100% recycled rubber tires and uses up the rubber from approximately two passenger car tires. It's good for the environment, and it's good for business, it solves your erosion control problems in a way that is friendly to the environment.

Barrier or Filter to Meet Your Needs

Eco-Blok™ comes in two versions, Barrier-Blok™ or Filter-Blok™. For those applications where you need complete hold back of liquid, semi-liquid, and solid matter, BARRIER is your best choice. If you want to allow water to flow through with the ability to capture solid and particulate matter, the FILTER version will produce the protection you need.

Eco-Blok™ Provides Solution for Loveland Colorado Development
John Giuliano, president of Giuliano and Father Construction Company based in Fort Collins, Colorado, wrote the stormwater management program for the site, which included placing the filtration blocks around the storm drainage boxes. “We’re using them to trap and keep sediment under control,” he says. “The filtration blocks stop it at the street level and let the water go on through. Sometimes we’ll use them in landscape areas, mainly inlet protections. The area where they are being used [at this site] is inside the residential development. What we’re finding with the Eco-Blok™s is that they stay in place really well and you can remove them for servicing."
The blocks are removed when they become clogged with sediment, he explains, and cleaned using a pressure washer. They can be set up onsite within approximately 10 minutes, and Giuliano says the blocks can be serviced in about the same amount of time.

“A month ago we experienced what our local storm drainage department called a five-year storm. We got two inches of rain in a 45-minute period. They were an absolute success,” says Giuliano. “In talking to our local storm drainage department, everything else would have failed, they said. Failure rate was 25% or less, and after talking with our stormwater department, we fared better than they had done; the methods that we used fared better. We stopped a lot of the sediment, almost all of the sediment in the street. It never entered the storm sewer system. We didn’t have to clean out any of our inlet boxes. We found them to be much easier to rehabilitate afterwards. Those same blocks are being used again today.” Suppliers and Manufacturers List
