Filter socks used for perimeter control are usually 12 inches in diameter, although 8 inch, 18 inch, and 24 inch– diameter socks are used in some applications.

How to Control Sediment Erosion on Construction Sites

How to Control Sediment Erosion on Construction Sites

Work on the average construction site disrupts many cubic yards of dirt. All of that disrupted soil poses a big sediment control challenge. Given the unpredictability of storms and rainfall, controlling sediment requires vigilance. It also adds to the cost of construction projects. But if sedimentation is not controlled, the

Case Studies in Tube-Based Sediment Control

With traditional sediment control devices like straw wattles and silt fence, a drop-and-go installation style could be disastrous. Proper trenching, staking, and preparation of the BMP-soil interface means the difference between success and failure, which has led many manufacturers of sediment control products to design the next generation of more

Compost: The Sustainable Solution

Compost: The Sustainable Solution

The use of recycled organics is one of our nation’s greatest assets, and we can utilize them to address several of society’s vexing challenges. The commercialization of composting as an economic method to manage organic (carbon-based) “wastes” got its rebirth in the late 1970s, and has grown from coast to

9 Benefits to Using Compost for Erosion and Sediment Control

9 Benefits to Using Compost for Erosion and Sediment Control

Erosion and sediment control. Although still considered relatively unknown in certain regions of North America, the use of compost in erosion and sediment control has been a very successful landscaping practice for over 25 years. Compost blankets (the application of a layer of compost on hill slopes), compost berms, and
