Silt Dike Installation and Maintenance
Silt dikes install in minutes and are an economical way to accomplish sediment control in a variety of locations. When installing silt dikes, you can secure the unit in place with U-shaped wire staples along the aprons on either side. This will allow your silt dike to be better conformed to rougher terrains and locations where sediment control might be impeded by the topography of the land.
A temporary dike must be checked regularly to ensure that it is working properly. While our silt dikes are long-lasting and durable, they need to be maintained. With proper installation and maintenance, your silt dike ditch check will perform at its best. If the area where you want your ditch check dam to be is longer than the standard 7' triangular silt dike sections, you can install multiple units side-by-side for maximum sediment control and stormwater management.
