Bio-Polymer Trench Drain Papers Authored by Geo-Solutions

Biopolymer bp drain with drainage stone

Bio-Polymer drains have proven to be a cost effective way to construct deep collection drain trenches. The bio-polymer trench drain technique eliminates the difficulties and costs associated with temporary shoring and all the dewatering associated with conventional construction.
