Trapping and retaining sediments in stream

Trapping and retaining silts in stream

Silt Mats capture sediment as it naturally drops out of suspension Silt Mats are deployed directly in channels downstream of earth moving or sediment disturbance activities. The mat position is important for delivering the most benefit and is best placed in areas of natural deposition where water energy is reduced.

Silt Mats are safe to use in stream and will encourage sediment and silts to drop out. The Silt Mat can then be taken out of stream and used on the river bank as erosion control.
