Silt Fence

There are two types of silt fence. The first type is a temporary sediment control barrier that is used to intercept and detain sediment while decreasing the velocity of runoff. Silt fences usually consist of geotextile filter fabric spread along the contour and anchored into the soil.
The second type is a temporary sediment solution that consists of a synthetic silt fence filter fabric barrier attached to supporting posts installed in soil trenches. Silt fencing is not a permanent erosion control practice but can be an effective solution for many applications. Silt fencing was created to slow and allow the ponding of water, enabling soil particles to settle. It has been used in the construction industry for many years to temporarily control sediment. Silt fencing is not a solution for high waters and should only be installed where shallow pools can form. Depending on the situation, silt fencing may complement other erosion control solutions.
