What is Bio Draw?
Bio Draw 3.0 is an interactive CD which describes design and installation procedures for 38 biotechnical soil stabilization techniques, along with 39 typical drawings of soil bioengineering techniques in .dwg (AutoCAD) and .dgn (MicroStation) format. All erosion control techniques presented incorporate live vegetation. Bio Draw is intended to help solve engineering problems while meeting the ever-increasing environmental demands prescribed by sensitive ecosystems. NPDES Phase II compliant!
Bio Draw describes in detail a series of "soft" bioengineering techniques and practices such as LIVE FASCINES, LIVE POLE DRAINS, COIR ROLLS WITH BRUSHLAYERING, POLE PLANTING, MODIFIED BRUSH LAYERS, BRUSH MATTRESSES, and MORE! The Bio Draw CD is liberally illustrated with "before" and "after" photos of real case studies which describe various installation steps for each technique. Clicking on the photos will expand them so details can be readily observed.
Both Erosion Draw and Bio Draw are developed by Salix Applied Earthcare, a Natural Resource Consulting Firm which specializes in Erosion Control, Bioengineering, Environmentally Sensitive Slope and and Streambank Stabilization, Watershed Restoration, Road Removal, and Natural Channel Design. Salix also offers Nationwide Training and Consulting. BioDraw 3.0 can be purchased for a cost of $199, plus S&H, (add sales tax in California). We ship overseas too.
