What is Inlet Protection?


Inlet protection installation

Inlet protection is a common erosion and sediment control used to prevent silt, sediment, and other pollutants from entering storm drain systems. When installed correctly, inlet protection is also an effective control measure to protect receiving waters from job site pollutants.


In the DC Metro Region, nearby receiving waters include the Potomac River and Chesapeake Watershed. As a company, we take great pride in protecting these resources.


There are numerous types of inlet protection devices that are used such as concrete block/gravel/wire, gutter buddies, silt fence, silt sacks, gutter eels, straw bales, and silt socks, to name a few.


We have trained crews that know how to install these numerous different types of inlet protection correctly. The result of this is happy site inspectors, less pollution getting into the storm system, reduced site maintenance costs for our clients, and an overall smoother project for our clients.
