Erosion & Sediment Control Device

  • Erosion Eel used for perimeter sediment control

Erosion Eel, by its very nature, functions to help prevent physical degradation of the environment by enhancing water quality. It is an environmentally friendly, low impact erosion and sediment control device. It may be placed over multiple surfaces including soil, asphalt, concrete, and surface rock. Increased flow rates through the filter material as compared to silt fence helps to prevent localized flooding during storm events.

Erosion Eels are reusable within a project and can be moved to other project sites. They minimize the amount of new product manufacturing (involving extraction of natural resources, additional manufactured products into the environment). At the end of a use cycle, rubber material can be cleaned and reused in new erosion eels that are produced.
