Silt Fence Sediment Control

Construction sites use silt fence as a temporary measure to control sediment. As a perimeter control device, silt fence effectively separates sediment from running into seas, lakes, streams, oceans, and other bodies of water. Silt fence also protects land from erosion during construction.

Additional sediment control strategies may be used along with silt fence. These include sediment basins and traps to collect the soil that was dug up from the construction site during excavation activities. Later, the collected sediment can be transported to other land areas.
