Silt Fence Sediment Control in Florida

Silt fences are implemented at construction sites as a temporary solution for sediment management. Acting as a boundary control, they successfully prevent sediment from seeping into various water bodies such as seas, lakes, streams, and oceans. Moreover, silt fences safeguard the terrain against erosion throughout the construction phase.

To complement the effectiveness of silt fences, additional sediment management techniques are often employed. Sediment basins and traps, for instance, are utilized to gather soil excavated during construction activities. This accumulated sediment can then be relocated to different land areas, further enhancing environmental protection measures.

Silt Fence Types

Standard Staked

Standard silt fence is strong and filters out many pollutants. It helps control erosion and water contamination during construction.

Type C Wire Back

Wire back Type C silt fence is mandatory when the construction site is located near ponds, lakes, or other bodies of water. Its features for added strength include hog wire back, steel posts, and a fabric consisting of woven geotextile.

Orange Safety

When visibility is a concern, an orange safety silt fence is recommended. The bright orange plastic mesh design is highly noticeable to warn passersby that the construction site is a danger zone.

DOT

Two types of DOT silt fence are CPOP and TYPE A. They contain polypropylene yarns of high strength with a backing of polypropylene mesh. Its sturdy design keeps the fence in a stable position. The materials guard against degradation, rotting, and ultraviolet damage.

CPOP - Includes hardwood stakes sized 2"x2". The centers are 4 feet tall. The CPOP can be used instead of the Wire Back silt.

TYPE A - Includes hardwood stakes sized 1 1/2” X 1 1/2. The centers are 6 feet tall.
