Denver Downs

TRI’s Denver Downs Research Facility (DDRF) in Anderson, SC, is the lead laboratory for large-scale testing. It focuses primarily on erosion and sediment control testing, though recently buried pipe and geosynthetic base reinforcement testing facilities have been added. TRI began operations at DDRF in 2007 and has, since that time, performed well over a hundred independent largescale performance tests on a wide range of ECPs and SRDs. Since the Fall of 2009, TRI’s DDRF has been the contract lab for the NTPEP’s large-scale ECP slope and channel erosion testing.
