Perimeter Sediment Control – Four Types

Cut BMP Costs in Half:

  • Installation Speed: Typically more than twice as fast.
  • Maintenance: There is almost no maintenance over the course of a long project, except to remove accumulated sedment. ERTEC products do not slump or decay and rarely washout.
  • Removal Speed: Typically more than four times as fast
  • Total Costs on your project: Significantly lower. And since the material is reusable, you save even more on the next project.

Improve Sediment Control Performance:

  • Long Term Stability: There is almost no decay, wind driven knock-overs, or trench washouts over the course of a long project. This leads to better long term performance.
  • Easy to Get it Right: Because it is easier to install ERTEC products, failures are less likely, leading to better long-term sediment control performance.
  • Water flows thru and spreads out: Traditional BMPs work by ponding water, creating a barrier to flow.  Pressure from ponding water can cause washouts and overtopping. ERTEC filters while allowing flow-thru, minimize these affects.
  • Test Results: Independent lab tests show outstanding sediment control performance for a passive device over mutiple consecutive storms.

Achieve better than ZERO Waste:

These products decrease the load on landfills. Better than ZERO Waste because they are:

  • Recycled: Made from Recycled Materials
  • Reusable: Reusable on multiple projects. 3, 4, 5, 6 uses are common.
  • Recyclable: Because they are made of HDPE (#2), they can be recycled at the end of life.

An ugly side-effect of the sediment control industry: 100% of silt fence and as much as 70% of Wattles (fiber rolls) find their way to our nation’s landfills. ERTEC is changing this dynamic.
