California High-Speed Rail Authority Selects Terra Novo™ Product for Major Infrastructure Projects

EarthGuard® Fiber Matrix™ Chosen to Provide Erosion Control by the Agency Behind One of the State's Most Ambitious Projects

BAKERSFIELD, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 22, 2015) - Terra Novo™, a leading manufacturer of erosion- and sediment-control, remediation and revegetation products, has been chosen by the California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority) to provide environmentally-friendly erosion control to its first phase of construction sites along the alignment from Avenue 17 in Madera County to American Avenue in Fresno County.

The Authority chose the company's environmentally safe erosion-control product, EarthGuard® Fiber Matrix (FM), to help it comply with strict storm water restrictions, required Federal Clean Water regulations and to provide dust control and suppression during construction.

"Terra Novo is proud to provide solutions that not only benefit organizations like the Authority but also support our local environment," says Scott Harrison, founder and president of Terra Novo. "We are glad the Authority chose our top-rated erosion control product, EarthGuard FM, for its proven ability to promote revegetation and reclamation in an environmentally safe manner."

The Authority is responsible for the planning, designing, building and operation of the first high-speed rail system in the nation. To date, the Authority has implemented many environmentally-friendly practices. Clean and green construction practices will continue to be used as activities in the Central Valley increase. With strict regulations and laws in place to protect wildlife, native vegetation and waterways, the Authority seeks to develop plans that incorporate safety and environmental compliance and sustainability.

"As part of our commitment to the Valley's air and water quality we have a proactive ground water contamination and dust prevention policy that is implemented through our design-build contracts. EarthGuard FM helps us maintain that commitment," said Scott Jarvis, chief engineer for the Authority.
