Siltation Fence

A silt fence is used on construction sites to help protect lakes, rivers, streams and other aquatic resources from contamination by sediment, construction debris, and silt. It works by slowing water long enough to cause silt to drop out allowing water to go through the fabric. Silt fence is available in many DOT styles and commercial styles. A super silt fence is available with either hog wire, welded wire backing or chain link. Geotextiles, colours and custom printing is also available.

Importance Of Siltation Fence?

Preservation Of Water Quality

Construction usually makes soil on your work site to become loose. Loose earth is known to contaminate nearby water sources including rivers, lakes, and oceans as stormwater runoff. This kind of overspill is dangerous because it contains fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals. Silt fences are vital in preventing a substantial amount of run-off with minimal relative effort and cost.

Temporary

Construction sites are always in a transitive state. This means that creating a permanent erosion and sediment control is not practical. However, silt fences are efficient since they can go up without having any lasting effect on the land that it is built on.

Durable & Cost Effective

Siltation fences can withstand one cubic foot of water flow per second as well as severe weather. They can last up to at least six months or even longer with routine maintenance such as patching up the fabric.

Law

Most states, cities and federal governments have put regulations that need contractors and developers to use silt fences and other related measures when construction is within a certain distance of water source.
