In December of 2005, the Taum Sauk Reservoir located in southern Missouri collapsed releasing a billion-gallon torrent of water in only twenty minutes that swept away and destroyed acres of parkland in the Johnson Shut-ins and spoiled the Black River. ECO Constructors was contracted to install over 3330 feet of twenty-four inch Filtrexx Filtersoxx for perimeter protection during the construction process of a road necessary for the restoration project to proceed. Twelve inch Filtrexx Filtersoxx was also installed to contain a waste pile and prevent any type of storm water contamination. The original specs called for the use of sandbags and silt fence, however the entire surface consists of rock. Silt fence and sandbags would have been useless to the client. Filtrexx Filtersoxx was the only viable solution for this particular project.
