Here is one of our crews installing a Filtrexx Silt Sock around the perimeter of a project in Washington, DC. We find that installing a silt sock around a perimeter can be a good alternative to silt fence, especially in urban areas where there is asphalt or concrete present as opposed to soil.
Here are some benefits to using filtration socks:
they can be easier to install/uninstall than silt fence in tight spaces and on concrete or asphalt
they are filled with biodegradable material or some are biodegrableable themselves
they allow water to pass through which can prevent flooding and pooling
These filtration socks can be used used for sediment control, stormwater management, inlet and washout protection, permiter control, perimeter control, slope stabilization, and more.
