Silt Fence 

Silt fences are temporary, permeable barriers of geo-textile that are installed in a trench and supported by star pickets or wooden posts.  They are designed to slow the velocity of the water and allow particles to drop out of the water column via gravity.  . The fence provides a barrier which minimises the impact of materials entering a waterways.  They should only be used in areas of sheet flow and are most effective in removing coarse particulates from run-off.  They have limited to no filtering capacity of fine or dispersive soils.  Silt fence can be installed by hand or with a tractor plough.

Silt fence is made of, UV resistant, woven polypropylene, which is specifically designed to reduce soil sediment run off from contained areas. Water is allowed to filter through the fabric while suspended soil particles settle to the ground.
