    Silt Bag Specifications

Product Description

The Silt Bag is designed to filter water as it is pumped from a storage site, removing hazardous materials such as silt before they can damage the environment. Layfield's silt bag is an economical choice for preventing costly clean up of a storm water system. The potential liability from adding silt to an aquatic ecosystem makes the silt bag a valuable environmental protection tool. Layfield's Silt bag is generally constructed from a sturdy nonwoven geotextile such as LP6 or LP8 and comes with a fabric flange fitted for 6" hose. Once fully drained, The Silt Bag and it's contents can be disposed of as a solid waste, an economical alternative to waste water or sludge disposal. The contents of the Silt Bag can also be returned to the soil on your site, eliminating waste disposal costs altogether.
