capacity sediment control barrier
A breakthrough in sediment control, the StormSack offers unrivaled
capacity and flexibility for construction site sediment control.
According to the EPA* (Construction Site Runoff Control, Minimum
Control Measures), sediment runoff from construction sites is 10 to 20
times greater than from agricultural lands and 1000 times to 2000 times
greater than from forested lands. Sediments from construction
activities will accumulate more quickly and can impact aquatic
environments in numerous ways including siltation, increased turbidity
and decreased light penetration. Additionally, pollutants
stored in layers of sediment can be re-mobilized and released later at
vastly higher concentrations.
The StormSack assists municipalities, stormwater managers and
contractors in meeting the EPA's NPDES Phase II Stormwater regulations
regarding runoff from new construction site activities. The
StormSack is designed to fit a wide range of rectangular and
combination curb/drop inlets using the same patented adjustable flange
technology from our class leading StormBasin products. The
StormSack can be configured to fit any size of catch basin from 16" X
16" through 50" X 50".
A StormSack in a 24" X 48" configuration can hold 1100 lbs of silt and
sand before it needs to be serviced. Using the latest in
geotextile technology the StormSack offers high flow rates (145 gpm per
The StormSack+ is fitted with an AEGIS treated Microbe Shield X-Tex
replaceable liner to capture pathogens, hydrocarbons oil and grease
while still retaining sand and silt to a 212 micron size. The
StormSack+ offers a flow rate of (106 gpm per square foot).
The StormSack and StormSack+ are reliable, economical and easy to
maintain filtering devices which provide temporary filtering of surface
water runoff and protects new catch basin inlets from receiving and
transporting large concentrations of sand, silt and construction
debris. Timely installation of these simple, effective
devices offers protection from costly cleanups and potential liability
for downstream environmental damage.
