Project Profile

Location: Helena, MT
Owner: Lewis & Clark County Landfill
Contractor: Montana Civil Contractors
Consulting Engineer: Great West Engineering
Application: Compost filter sock used in slope interruption

Why was this product chosen over other options?

The contractor understood the total installation costs were far less than the straw wattle option even though the material cost for the Compost sock was higher. Compost filter sock’s flow-thru filtering allows dissipation of water build up behind the sock. Because of its flow-thru characteristics and weighing 8# per foot eliminates trenching of the CFS and staking up to 10 ft. cut installation in ¼ the time of straw wattles. Engineer was pleased with the installation.
