Filter Sock Uses
Filtersock allows water to flow through them at a controlled rate, trapping sediment and other detritus. The material’s malleability creates close ground contact preventing water from flowing underneath.
Filtersock filters and removes common pollutants found in stormwater, including, chemicals, sewage overflow, cigarette butts, plastic and styrofoam containers, paint & construction debris, and more.
Stormwater runoff can create problems if not effectively managed with an erosion control solution, such as filtersock. Stormwater issues include downstream flooding, stream bank erosion that also causes turbidity, habitat destruction, as well as contaminated streams, rivers, and coastal waters.
Walls, Barriers, & Slopes
Filtersock provides effective protection to keep wall foundations secure from the effects of water seepage and using multiple filtersock on sloping landscape will preserve the soil from being eroded and prevent crop damage due to stormwater runoff.
