What is the purpose of a silt fence?
Silt fences are used as a sediment control barrier on a construction site or any other disturbed land. It’s important to retain soil, to control erosion and protect nearby bodies of water from being filled with excess sediments or pollutants.
Does water go through silt fence?
Yes, silt fences are made of a woven synthetic material, usually a woven geotextile fabric. Woven geotextile fabrics are a semi impermeable fabric. They allow water to flow through the material slowly, while trapping sediment.
