Wattles are made from recycled rice straw that is pressure blown into tubular netting bundles. They are weed and seed free. The wattles are secured at each end using hog rings.
Rice straw wattles should be installed in accordance with standard details for fiber rolls. Straw wattles are used as perimeter controls, velocity dams and on slopes. They reduce the runoff velocity and control/capture eroded sediment. These are easier to handle and install than straw bales or fabric fences.
Catch Basin Protector
The Catch Basin Protector removes sediment and pollutants from stormwater runoff. The protectors are designed to remove oil and other contaminants from entering storm drains and capture sediment and debris.
A silt fence or filter fence is a temporary sediment control device used on construction sites to protect water quality in nearby streams, rivers, lakes and bays from sediment in storm water runoff. Silt fences are perimeter controls typically used in combination with other sediment BMPs designed to retain sediment in place where soil is being disturbed by the construction processes.
Construction entrances are designed to knock mud off tires thereby preventing the tracking of sediment onto public streets.
Our entrances are excavated 6"-12" deep with a geo-textile fabric laid under the rock. The typical construction entrance is approximately 20’ x 50’ with 3" x 5" sharp-edged aggregate rock. The size and thickness of the construction entrance vary based on the erosion control plan detail.
Gravel bags are a basic BMP (Best Management Practice) used to meet regulatory requirements for storm water and erosion control. They are made from high quality woven mono-filament polymer material that can withstand the demands of a construction site.
Rolled Erosion Control Products (RECP) or Blankets
A protective mulch blanket applied on top of exposed soil to prevent erosion. Erosion control blankets are made from biodegradable materials such as straw, coconut or wood fibers. They are used on slopes and swales to prevent the erosion of disturbed soil.
They are available in photodegradable and biodegradable netting:
- Single-sided and double-sided straw blanket
- Coco Blanket
- 70% straw – 30% coco blanket
- Jute Netting
- Other types available
