Houston has experienced a major construction boom in recent years. With the recent devastation of Hurricane Harvey, a large number of steel sheet pile projects have been included in this construction for added flood control. Many of the city’s waterways are being revamped in the hopes it will help prevent another catastrophic flooding event like Harvey. Corrosion protection for sheet piles is paramount to their long-term service life as they are extremely difficult to repair once corrosion has begun.
