Staked Silt Control Barrier

staked silt barrierThe Staked Silt Barrier is a high strength silt fence used for stormwater runoff and sheetflow control. Designed to block and redirect water, these barriers are often used in areas with significant water or sheetflow runoff. This helps to retain sediment and control stormwater in even the most demanding locations.

While the standard silt fence uses a permeable fencing fabric, Staked Barriers feature an impermeable PVC fabric. This means that water will be contained within the area, rather than water flowing through the filter fabric. Barriers are often used in water that is shallower than thirty inches (30"), such as along road sides, and in ditches, canals, shallow ponds or lakes.

Staked Silt Fence & BMP Products

staked silt barrier, price quoteThe staked silt barrier is an excellent choice for use as BMPs (Best Management Practices) along road side ditches, shallow marshes and lakes where a floating turbidity curtain, floating silt barrier or traditional silt fence would not work well.

These barriers are built from a robust impermeable fabric material that can effectively contain and control water. In addition to this staked material, we also offer several more standard silt fencing options including a standard silt fence, wire back fence, and orange safety barrier. For more information, check out the Silt Fence Page.

Typical Staked Barrier Installation

Typical installation procedure for the staked barrier is as follows:

  1. Dig an 8 inch deep trench along the desired flow control path, placing fill on up slope side of trench.

  2. On down slope side of trench install 1"x1" wooden stakes (re-bar of similar) on 6' centers maximum. These are to protrude 36" above the gradient.

  3. Unroll the Silt barrier and fasten to stakes with ties - 36 inches attached to stakes and 8 inches in trench (HEMMED EDGE IS TOP).

  4. Once entire run is in place and desired flow diversion path is in place then back-fill the 8 inch trench trapping the bottom 8 inches of the silt barrier, effectively creating a runoff seal.

This system works best on gentle to moderately sloped sites with porous soil. Barriers can be used in water depths less than 30" and no flow. In place of back-fill use sand bags to create bottom seal.
