Straw Erosion Wattles

straw erosion control wattleStraw erosion wattles are a great option for filtration around storm drains, construction perimeters and other areas dealing with erosion or polluted storm water runoff. Constructed from 100% wheat straw, these wattles become a filtration medium that can effectively retain sediment and prevent pollution from leaving your site.

Wattles are round in structure and are most are commonly used on slopes, streams and other low flow areas. They are designed to naturally biodegrade over short periods of time.
