Siltsack - Type A
Siltsacks (Silt Filter Bags) are temporary catch basin filters that catches sediment, trash and debris as it enters an inlet. Available in both high flow and regular flow (all high visibility), Siltsack can be manufactured with built-in curb deflectors, a metal frame and overflow holes.
Routine inspection of a Siltsack’s collected sediment level is important to prevent “ponding” around storm drains.
Siltsacks (Silt Filter Bags) can be emptied and re-used for the life of the construction project if well maintained.
