Staked Turbidity Barrier
Staked Turbidity Fence for Stormwater and Erosion Control
The Triton 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, staked silt 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 are constructed from impermeable PVC material rather than permeable woven fabric. This helps to redirect water flows rather than allow water to continuously pass through the fence.

The Triton Staked Silt Barrier - A DOT-Compliant Stormwater BMP
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.
Our staked silt barriers meet US DOT requirements for Erosion and Sediment Control. Ideal for use as a Stormwater BMP, these barriers have been commonly used to control stormwater runoff on construction sites, roads, ditches, and other areas dealing with increased water flows.

Staked Silt Control Barrier Installation
To install this Stormwater BMP, follow the general guidelines below. Please follow your state's DOT recommendations to maintain compliance. Correct installation is important for this stormwater control solution's effectiveness.
This system works best on gentle to moderately sloped sites with porous soil or in water with depths less than 30".
- Dig an 8 inch deep trench along the desired flow control path, placing fill on the upslope side of trench.
- On the downslope side of trench, install 1”x 1” wooden stakes (re-bar or similar) on 6’ centers maximum, protruding 36” above the gradient.
- Unroll the silt barrier and fasten to stakes – 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 sandbags to create a bottom seal.
