Silt Barrier for Drainage Ditch
Triton Staked Silt Barrier for Drainage Ditches
Prevent silt build-up in drainage ditches on your site with staked silt barrier. Triton Staked Silt Barrier is made from the same durable yellow PVC material as floating turbidity curtain, but is attached to wood stakes for land-based use.
Staked Silt Barrier for Drainage Ditch : Application and Use
Our staked silt barrier is designed specifically for stormwater runoff control and sheet flow control at job sites. It helps to prevent the spread of silt and sediment in water shallower that 30 inches along road side ditches, stormwater swales, and canals. Often implemented as a BMP (Best Management Practices), staked silt barriers meet US DOT requirements for erosion and sediment control.
We manufacture these in 44.5" x 100' rolls—in stock and ready to ship. We can also build to suit.
Staked Silt Barrier: Simple and Fast Installation
Installation and set up is easy. First, dig a trench along the flow control path, and install wooden stakes. Then, unroll the yellow PVC material and attach it to the stakes. Finally, add backfill to the bottom of the silt barrier to create a runoff seal. Also remember to maintain your staked silt barrier, by clearing out sediment as it accumulates and adjusting the barrier as needed for ongoing effectiveness.

Water Runoff Control Options
Other products by GEI Works, to help your site stay in compliance:
Standard Silt Fence is similar to a staked silt barrier, but is made from a black permeable geotextile that allows water to filter through the fabric. This is useful in areas where silt control is needed, and water flow does not need to be redirected.
Triton Type 1 floating turbidity curtain is made from the same PVC material as the staked silt barrier, but is used in deeper waters over 30" to contain silt in a water body and allow time for it to settle to the bottom.
Triton Type 2, 3, Heavy Duty, and Permeable Turbidity Curtain are also available in both standard and custom sizes.
Our Taurus Ditch Check acts as a mini dam to filter sediment runoff in ditches, stormwater swales, and canals.
