Silt Fence Problems - very slow to no seepage - overflow, knock down, and scour beneath /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Conventional Solutions … Limit Buildup Silt Fence J-Hooks Silt Fences in Series ///////////////// OR ///////////////// Crushed Stone “Control Outlets” (i.e., Reduced Flow Rate at Select Locations) But NO “Sediment Retention and Filtration”

  5. 5. CRAFS® Eliminates Blunt Impact UPSTREAM support post(s) “SPLITS” runoff entering system . … runoff flows diagonally toward DOWNSTREAM support posts
  6. 6. CRAFS® DIVIDES & DISTRIBUTES retained runoff into multiple retention wedges for … lower stress on retention system, … broader sediment “deposition” upstream , and … more filter fabric surface area against retained runoff
  7. 7. Heavy loads of retained runoff = Instability and Overflow CRAFSTM 3-D Structure = “Lateral Load Support” CRAFS® Lateral Load Support … with interaction between upstream and downstream support posts

  14. 14. CRAFS® INSTALLATION 1. Clip banding at top & bottom of packaging, slide CRAFS® from fabric sleeve, and unroll CRAFS® system with nonwoven fabric apron against the ground and woven monofilament filter fabric atop apron. 2. Pull all four corners of system’s apron taught with bottom of apron against ground surface. Upstream edge of apron should extend 12” upstream of the “stake sleeves” for the system’s “vertical filter fabric component”, and be parallel with alignment of toe-in trench. 3. Dig toe-in trench for CRAFS® in straight line perpendicular to the direction of flow for sediment runoff. If CRAFS® is adjacent to and connected with a silt fence alignment, toe-in for both systems will follow the same trench alignment perpendicular to direction of sediment runoff. 4. Because CRAFS® is intended for critical spots with trouble conditions, proper apron “toe-in” is critical. Assure apron “toe-in fabric” is placed against the downstream vertical wall of 6” deep “toe-in trench” (adjacent to system’s upstream vertexes), and laid across the bottom of the “toe-in trench” full 6” width. (See Step 8 below regarding compaction of toe-in backfill.) 5. Slide fence posts through sleeves at the upstream vertexes of system, and drive vertically through the apron fabric in bottom corner of trench, until post stands stable. 6. Pull down stream edges of apron taught and assure apron lays flat against the ground surface. Slide fence posts through sleeves in downstream vertexes, and pull taught in perpendicular direction against upstream post alignment. Drive downstream posts vertically into the ground while maintaining through fabrics between all posts in system (upstream and downstream), i.e., to eliminate wrinkles in the “vertical corrugated filter fabric system” as well as the apron lying on the ground. 7. While assuring vertical posture of all posts and “no slack” in system’s fabrics, firmly drive all upstream and downstream support posts “firmly” into the ground. 8. Provide “firm” compaction of all backfill in “toe-in trench”, and assure elevation of densely compacted backfill is same or slightly higher than adjacent native soil level. Add and compact more backfill if necessary. 9. Confirm vertical posture of support posts, and be sure that all other steps of post and toe-in installation are completed per ASTM D6462 Section 8.2 “Construction”. Make corrections if necessary to assure system stability and long term performance after installation. 10. For routine inspection and maintenance of CRAFS® units installed, follow the general guidelines provided in ASTM D6462 Section 8.3 “Maintenance”.
