A silt fence is a temporary shield of transparent cloth to the water. It is kept up by wooden or metal posts pushed into the earth, so the removal is inexpensive and fairly simple.
The wastewater drainage of the cloth dams is sediment-laden, allowing the settling systems to accumulate sediment.
- Easy design and deployment right on
- Runoff extracts before exiting the area
- Sediment remains on land
- Aid to erosion control
Currently, several construction sites do have silt fencing. Yet, since they are not properly planned, mounted, or managed, others do not function effectively. The Integrated Erosion Control Group focuses on how to make silt fences work.
