Stormwater BMP - Filtration Check Dams Made in the USA

Ditch Check filtering stormwater

The Taurus Ditch Check functions like a mini check dam to filter sediment runoff flowing through your ditch, swale, weir or culvert. Our check dams are designed to be small, temporary dams used with swales or drainage ditches to filter and slow the speed of the water flow through an area. They assist with providing temporary stabilization of construction sites during stormwater events. Multiple ditch checks can be installed at a single site for additional control of the water.
