Sediment Control

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

Filtrexx® filter soxx are used for the perimeter control of sediment and other soluble pollutants around construction and mining sites.

Filter soxx used for sediment control can be installed downslope from any disturbed area and are most effective when installed perpendicular to sheet or low concentrated flow.


Filter soxx uses for sediment control include:

  • Building and construction site perimeters

  • Above and below disturbed areas subject to sheet runoff and rill erosion

  • On compacted soils and paved surfaces where silt fences are difficult or impossible to install

  • Around sensitive trees where trenching may damage existing roots and vegetation.

Sediment Control Soxx Installation

  1. Install sediment control soxx parallel to the base of the slope or disturbed area.  In extreme conditions (ie 2 in 1 slopes), a second sediment control soxx should be located at the top of the slope.

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

  3. Stakes should be 50mm x 50mm x 600mm softwood or equivalent and should be located as follows:

    • sand and loam soils = 300mm deep

    • clay soils = 200mm deep

  4. If the sediment control soxx is 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. Sediment control soxx should be regularly inspected to make sure that they maintain their shape and that they are producing adequate hydraulic flow through.

  3. If ponding becomes excessive, additional sediment control may be required to reduce effective slope length, or sediment removal may be necessary.
