and Sediment Retention Devices.

TRI’s Denver Downs Research Facility
is the leading independent commercial lab for large-scale testing of Erosion Control Products (ECP) and Sediment Retention Devices (SRD).

TRI employs trained technicians, standard operating procedures (SOPs), and the necessary equipment for all standardized test methods, and many non-standard test methods. All standard test methods can be run at any time. Typically, index testing can be completed and reported within one week of sample receipt (depending on existing workload). Bench-scale and large-scale testing turn-around also depends on lab workload, but is typically 6 to 8 weeks, including report issuance.
