About Silt Fence
Silt fence is used on construction sites as a temporary sediment control device. The solution is put in place to protect the integrity of nearby bodies of water, including streams, seas, oceans, and lakes. Used as perimeter controls, silt fence may be used in conjunction with sediment traps and sediment basins. Installed and managed responsibly, these systems will retain sediment where soil can be distributed via land grading or other earthworks.
Using a silt fence is a popular option as they are easy to implement and relatively inexpensive.
