• Concept

    Riparian tanks are hollow concrete casted blocks that provide aesthetic appearance and habitats for aquatics along the water.
  • Application

    Waterfront access areas, such as river and pond.
  • Characteristics

    1. Making use of in-situ soil.
    2. Easy and rapid installation.
    3. Good resistance to erosion.
    4. Providing an artistic appearance.
    5. Providing habitats along the water.


  • Foundation Levelling

    Clean the ground surface of the site. And then establish the necessary level lines.

  • Foundation Casting

    Cast the required concrete foundation for riparian tank as shown on the design drawing.

  • Backfill Separation

    Lay ACETex® below and behind the proposed position of riparian tank to prevent loss of backfill soil.

  • Tank Arrangement

    Arrange riparian tanks in accordance with the design drawing.

  • Repeat Process

    Repeat step 3 and 4 to achieve the designed range.

  • Finishing Work

    Pour concrete onto or stack soil bags on the riparian tank for a neat finish.

Riparian TankDemonstrative Case

Revetment Reinforcement of Daya River, Taichung, Taiwan.

The residential neighborhood near the Daya river was facing the impending problem of flooding in the coming rainy season since the narrow draining water cross section of Daya River was unable to discharge the runoff and the existing revetment protection was insufficient to protect the residence from the flood. To solve the problem, the water cross section was excavated, and the revetment was reinforced with riparian tanks. The hollow part of the tank was filled with soil bags and then vegetated. Now the draining water cross section of Daya River is able to discharge the runoff even in the torrential rain. The riverside is filled with grass and has become a recreational place for the residence nearby.
