FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Public Meeting – Special Presentation: Greg Palmer, Maverick Solutions LLC, will be speaking with the Coquille Watershed Council and the Coos County community about “Vegetated Terra Walls”, an innovative solution to many of the erosion and sedimentation problems facing the Coquille River. Their “Gripper System” is the most advanced terra wall technology available today, and the system is a fully engineered, cost effective and labor reducing solution that is stronger than concrete block, rock and traditional hardscapes. Any plant that will grow in the environment where the project is located will grow in the Gripper System, which allows for superior structural integrity over hardscapes, such as rip-rap, while still creating an environmental habitat that is fully vegetated and natural to its native environment. Terra walls produce the most successful permanent bio-engineering results, and Maverick Solutions has worked closely with permitting agencies and a multitude of state, county and city governments to implement effective projects. They have also been approved for grant funding on private property projects through OWEB. They are an Oregon-based company and partner in the environmental construction industry.
Since they work with private landowners, contractors, governments and corporations, we will discuss a variety of applications, including streambank erosion, retaining walls, retention ponds and sloping. For more information and photos of their work, please see their website: www.maversol.com.
