Wattles are erosion and sediment control devices installed in drainage areas on construction sites to reduce stormwater velocity and retain sediment before entering discharge points. In urban areas, Wattles can be used as a silt fence replacement along sidewalks and/or around construction perimeters to prevent sediment from washing into gutters. In low flow channels, Wattles can be used as a straw bale replacement to reduce water velocities and trap sediment. Unlike silt fence that must be removed following vegetation establishment, Wattles can be abandoned in place to slowly biodegrade and blend with the existing landscape.
Eco Turf is experienced in the proper installation of Wattles, essential to ensure the product will function as designed.
