Silt Sock
Silt Sock manufactures a variety of products for controlling erosion and sediment. This line includes tube-based products known as silt socks, filter socks, or sediment socks. This product features fabric filled with compost, wood chips, or other organic filtering material to help keep soil in place by reducing stormwater runoff and trapping sediment. In addition to the finished product, the company also supplies fabric and equipment to produce socks. This process minimizes expense on transporting a ready-to-install sock.

Bury HydroBlox in an area where you need to control the water. The planks can be laid flat, placed on edge, or even stacked. There is no need for heavy equipment, geotextiles, drainage pipe, sand, or aggregate. Just establish the proper slope, install the HydroBlox, and backfill. As water is introduced to the planks, filling the microscopic cracks and crevasses throughout the product, the planks become saturated. This is where gravity takes over—the water will flow downward, utilizing the easier path through HydroBlox. Once one plank is saturated, the water flows from plank to plank to its final destination.

Soil Retention Products Inc.
Soil Retention Products Inc., the leading provider of Plantable concrete systems, just launched their newest product, Drivable Turf, a pre-cut artificial turf solution that fits to Soil Retention’s permeable, flexible concrete pavement system, Drivable Grass.

J.W. Faircloth & Son Inc.
The Faircloth Skimmer surface drain floats on the surface of the sediment basin as it fills and drains, releasing the cleanest water near the surface instead of draining muddy water from the bottom of the basin as conventional outlets do. The skimmer drains the basin slowly over several days at a constant rate to maximize settling. The adjustable orifice regulates the filling and drawdown of the basin and improves efficiency.
