Sediment Control Devices
The following is a listing of Sediment Control Devices that are available to help meet the requirements of your site SWPPP plan. In addition to the fiber rolls and Filtrexx SiltSoxx which provide perimeter sediment control, these items address additional specific site needs.

– The Silt Sack® is a temporary catch basin insert used to prevent trash, silt and sediment from entering storm drain. The insert is designed to fit into the storm drain under the grate is made from a high strength, high flow, woven geotextile. Available sizes are 2’x2’, 2’x3’ & 2’x4’, in 18” depth. Custom sizes are also available.

– The Triangular Silt Dikes are for use as temporary check dams. They are made of flexible urethane foam core wrapped in a woven geotextile fabric. This product is flexible enough to allow vehicles to pass over it without damage. This product is reusable and comes in heights of 5”, 8” or 12”. All are 7’ in length. This is a special-order product.

– Perimeter Guard™ is a tested, patented, high performance and low-cost system designed to provide effective sediment control on or around home building sites. Perimeter Guard™ is an important part of a comprehensive best management approach for sediment control. It allows water flow-through while at the same time provides particle filtering and is designed for high traffic environments where vehicular and foot traffic over the BMPs is routine. Perimeter Guard is made in the US from durable and recyclable HDPE.

- The Heavyweight DuraWattle™ is a flexible sediment barrier. The DuraWattle™ is made to be driven over, rebounding back to shape immediately. It is 100% made in USA for lasting performance. The wattle materials are highly UV-resistant.

– Curb Inlet and Ditch Pavement filter logs, used where staking is not possible and water contains sediments which need to be filtered. Product is reusable and can be washed clean. Product is available in 6’, 8’ and 10’ lengths, 9” diameter.

– Curb Inlet and Ditch Pavement filter logs, used where staking is not possible and water contains sediments which need to be filtered. Product is reusable and can be washed clean. Product is available in 6’, 8’ and 10’ lengths, 9” diameter.

Silt Fence – is a woven geotextile fabric designed to pond sediment laden water and trap silt behind fabric. Silt fence must be installed 6-12” into soil and backfilled to prevent undermining. Typical roll sizes are 3’x100’ with 48” hardwood stakes installed at 6’, 8’ or 10’ on center spacing. Prefabricated Silt Fence with 6’ and 8’ on center spaced stake meets Caltrans Section 96-1.02E Woven Silt Fence Fabric specification. Silt Fence material is also available without stakes and with wire backing attached.

are floating barriers used to contain sediment. The floating barriers are placed so the run-off water is contained and the sediment drops out of the water prior to flowing under the barrier. Type I barriers are for use in areas that are exposed only to light winds and to current velocities of less than one foot per second. Type II barriers are recommended for lakes, streams, intercoastal and tidal areas where current velocities up to five feet per second are expected. Type I and Type II barriers are stocked in 5’ depth, measured from top of float to bottom of curtain. Special depths are also available. Staked turbidity barrier are also available to direct runoff to a containment area.

– Dirtbag® dewatering bags remove silt, sand, and other debris from pumped water on construction sites. The Dirtbag® is made from a high strength non-woven geotextile fabric and is designed to utilize up to a 4” discharge hose. As water is pumped into Dirtbag®, silt builds up on the inside of the bag and filtered water is allowed to pass through fabric. The bag is disposed of after it becomes full. Stocking sizes are 10’x15’ or 4’x6’. Custom sizes are also available.

- Mud Mats are an alternative to standard jobsite entrances. They allow site access for use on soft soils and sensitive areas. They are designed to be unrolled at the jobsite and to be driven over in most muddy, swampy ground without getting stuck, rutting or tracking mud off site. Applications include residential construction, site entrances, golf courses and parks.

Gravel and Sand Bags – We stock a complete line of gravel, poly-white and burlap sand bags. Both are available either unfilled and filled. The gravel bags are filled with material that meets the Caltrans specifications. Sand bags are filled with a Coarse Grit Sand.
