The SedimentSTOP Biodegradable Filtration System consists of a 70% straw and 30% coconut-fiber matrix reinforced with 100% biodegradable netting that is rolled from edge to edge to create a highly-effective, temporary, three-dimensional, sediment-filtration structure.
SedimentSTOP is recognized as a Best Management Practice for reducing soil loss caused by stormwater runoff. It can assist you in complying with many NPDES Phase II rules and other environmental regulations, and help earn points toward your LEED® Green Building Rating Systemproject certification goals.
SedimentSTOP provides highly effective sediment control for a wide range of applications:
- Forest fire rehabilitation
- Bioengineering projects
- Active jobsites—commercial/new home construction
- Ski slopes
- Highway construction
- Wetland mitigation
- Riparian area protection
- Stream bank restorations
- Industrial sites
- Pipeline revegetation
- Steep slopes
- Edging/perimeter control
By eliminating the need to return to the jobsite to remove the sediment control structure, SedimentSTOP saves you time, money, and headaches.
SedimentSTOP is water permeable, so it allows water to pass through while trapping soil particles. It offers significantly greater filtration capabilities and sediment retention than wattles, straw bales, or silt fence. SedimentSTOP can be incorporated with a variety of planting techniques, such as live planting, live staking, and seed incorporation. The leno-woven net enables jute strands to move independently, and openings to expand as necessary. This flexibility, combined with its 100% biodegradability, minimizes the risk of accidental wildlife entrapment.
