Staked Silt Barrier
Stormwater and Erosion Control
The Staked Silt Barrier is one of our highest strength land-based barriers and is designed specifically for locations dealing with high water flows, such as stormwater runoff and site sheet flow. When installed correctly, barriers have been used to effectively control water flow across your site and direct water to sediment settling ponds or retention basins.
When compared to the standard silt fence, staked silt control barriers feature an impermeable material rather than a permeable woven fabric. This helps to redirect water flows rather than allow water to continuously pass through the fence.

Learn More about the Staked Barrier
The staked silt barrier is typically used along road side ditches, shallow marshes, and lakes where a floating silt barrier or traditional silt fence would not work well. This barrier is made with A grade industrial membrane materials that offer a 350 lb tensile strength. Ideal for use as a Stormwater BMP, these barriers have been commonly used on construction sites, roads, ditches and other areas dealing with increased water flows.
- Easily Located

Staked Silt Control Barrier Installation
Our silt barriers meet USDOT Erosion and Sediment Control requirements. To install this Stormwater BMP, follow the general guidelines below. Please follow your state's DOT recommendations to maintain compliance. This system works best on gentle to moderately sloped sites with porus soil. It can be used in water with depths less than 30".
- Dig an 8 inch deep trench along the desired flow control path placing fill on up slope side of trench.
- On down slope side of trench install 1”x 1” wooden stakes (re-bar or similar) on 6’ centers maximum. These are to protrude 36” above the gradient.
- Unroll the Silt Barrier and fasten to stakes with ties – 36 inches attached to stakes and 8 inches in trench.
- Once entire run is in place and desired flow diversion path is in place then back-fill the 8 inch trench trapping the bottom 8 inches of the silt barrier, effectively creating a runoff seal. If no backfill is available, use sand bags to create a bottom seal.
