Runoff Diversion

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 1 customer rating
(1 customer review)

Filtrexx® filter soxx are used for diversion or redirection of runoff otherwise flowing to disturbed or highly erodible areas on and around construction and mining sites.

Filter soxx can be used for temporary or permanent runoff diversion in the prevention of soil erosion during excavation, or prior to erosion control practice installation, vegetation establishment, or final stabilisation.


Filter soxx used for runoff diversion

  • Generally used upslope of areas undergoing excavation

  • Effective at diverting sheet flow runoff coming from stabilised areas flowing to unstable or bare soils

  • Direct runoff flows to stabilised channels, vegetated areas, collection ponds or stormwater inlets

  • Also used for temporary diversions on paved surfaces to protect adjacent disturbed soils

  • Can be direct seeded to allow vegetation establishment to provide permanent control of runoff velocity.

Runoff Diversion Soxx Installation

  1. Runoff diversion shall be installed above and adjacent to areas of unprotected soil or areas prone to soil erosion.

  2. Runoff diversion placed on slopes greater than 5 % may require erosion control and soil stabilisation measures where runoff flow is concentrated.

  3. Runoff diversion shall not be used on slopes greater than 2:1.

  4. Stakes should be installed on the low side of the soxx at 3 metre intervals.

    Stakes should be 50mm x 50mm x 600mm softwood and should be located as follows:

    • sand and loam soils = 300mm deep

    • clay soils = 200mm deep

  5. If the sediment control soxx are to be left as a permanent filter or part of the natural landscape, the soxx may be seeded at the time of installation for the establishment of permanent vegetation.


Inspection and Maintenance

  1. Routine inspection should be conducted within 24 hours of a runoff event or as designated by the regulatory authority.

  2. Runoff diversion soxx should be regularly inspected to make sure that they maintain their shape and that they are adequately diverting stormwater runoff.

  3. If ponding becomes excessive, additional runoff diversion may be required, or the soxx may need to be adjusted to allow gravitational flow of water down slope.
