Palletized Compost Filter Sock Sediment Control

Compost Sock

Palletized Compost Filter Sock is a mesh tube filled with composted wood debris to help keep mud and other pollutants out of waterways. During rain events, water “ponds” behind Compost Filter Sock, then seeps through – the pollutants either settle out or are filtered out. With compost sock, total installation costs are far less than straw wattles or silt fence. Extensive testing shows Compost Filter Sock outperforms silt fence and straw wattle products. They meet USDA-NRCS, AASHTO, USACE, and EPA specifications as well as those of many State Agencies.
