Sediment Bags

Bags & Tubes to Remove Sediment from Ponds

sediment bagQuestion: I am interested in using sediment bags to trap and remove sediment from ponds. Do you have any experience with this type of application? I estimate that the ponds will be 1000 cu/yd and greater.

Sediment Dewatering Bags

Answer: Dewatering Sediment Bags are a popular solution for removing and containing silt from sediment ponds and holding areas. Designed from an economical filter fabric, each bag contains a series of small pores that allows water to flow out of the bag while sediment and other materials are contained. This creates a reliable method of filtering and containing sediment.

  • Sediment Capacities: 1.44 to 15 cubic yards/bag (depending on the size of the bag chosen)
  • Filtration Abilities: 8 oz. or 10 oz. Nonwoven Fabric
    • 8 oz. Material: 80 gpm/sq. ft./AOS: 80 US Sieve
    • 10 oz. Material: 60 gpm/sq ft./AOS: 100 US Sieve
  • Attachment: Quick hose connection to bag inlet
  • Standard and custom sizes available.

Dewatering Bags are commonly used for small to moderate projects or areas with small amounts of available space. These sediment bags are a particular favorite for construction site runoff or areas with small sediment containment requirements.

Dewatering Tubes & Large Sediment Removal Projects

dewatering tubeFor larger projects and dewatering requirements, we also offer a Sediment/Sludge Dewatering Tube. These bags are significantly larger in size and can be made in lengths as long as 200 feet. Tubes are commonly used for areas that require a single storage tube or have large or long-term dewatering requirements.

Dewatering Tube Facts

  • Fabric: Woven Monofilament Fabric
  • Sizing: Lengths up to 200' and a Circumference up to 90'
  • Large Sediment Containment Requirements

Dewatering Tubes are commonly used on waste water treatment plants, sludge dewatering projects and large pond dewatering. They are also frequently used in combination with polymers or chemicals that help to reduce TSS levels in the bag.

Dewatering Bag vs. Dewatering Tube

Below you find typical uses for dewatering bags and dewatering tubes on our site. Either of these dewatering products can be used to help keep within NPDES phase II and Clean Water Act compliance and avoid shut downs and/or fines for not removing material like sediment and organics from pumped water and possibly exceeding TSS permit levels. Please do not hesitate to contact us at 1-772-646-0597 to discuss your requirements.
