Silt fences offer temporary sediment control. They are idea for construction sites as they help protect water quality in nearby streams, rivers, lakes from sediment in stormwater runoff.
A temporary sediment barrier made from woven, synthetic filtration fabric supported by posts. The purpose is to prevent sediment carried by sheet flow from leaving a site and entering natural or storm drainage. Silt fencing encourages sheet flow and reduces the potential for development of rills and gullies.
