  8. 8. HARD SURFACE PROTECTION EFFECTIVE ON FROZEN GROUND, CONCRETE OR ANY OTHER HARD SURFACE
  9. 9. DITCH CHECK APPLICATION SILTWORM creates a temporary ponding and FILTERS stormwater
  10. 10. BENEFITS OF SILTWORM™ • ECO-FRIENDLY….. 100% RECYCLED FILLER MATERIAL, REUSABLE • MORE EFFECTIVE….CAN BE PLACED ON HARD SURFACES/FROZEN GROUND • VERSITILITY...APPROVED FOR DITCH CHECK, SLOPE INTERUPTION, AND PERIMETER CONTROL APPLICATIONS,INLET PROTECTION • JOB SITE ACCESS....CAN BE MOVED AND PUT BACK IN PLACE • COST BENEFIT...CONTRACTORS SAVE $$ USING IT • LIMITED TRENCHING AND STAKING REQUIREMENTS • FILTER....SEPARATES JOBSITE CONTAMINATES
  11. 11. EASY INSTALLATION 2 EASY STEPS: 1. ARRANGE SILTWORM AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE SITE AND PERPENDICULAR TO STORM WATER FLOW. IN SITES WITH GRADE GREATER THAN 12%, SILTWORM SHOULD BE STAKED OR STACKED FOR ADDITIONAL SECURITY. 2. OVERLAP ADJACENT SILTWORM BY 6” . BENEFITS: • NO EQUIPMENT REQUIRED. • LIMITED STAKING OR TRENCHING REQUIRED. • CAN BE PLACED DIRECTLY ONTO FROZEN GROUND OR CONCRETE. • CAN BE USED IN DITCH CHECK APPLICATION. • CAN BE USED AS INLET PROTECTION FOR STORM DRAINS OR TO REDUCE WATER FLOW IN SMALL DITCHES. • ENDS OF SILTWORM CAN ANGLED IN THE DIRECTION OF THE SLOPE TO PREVENT STORM WATER FROM ESCAPING AROUND THE ENDS.
  12. 12. EASY INSTALLATION
  13. 13. PERIMETER CONTROL: PLACE SILTWORM DIRECTLY ON TOP OF GRADE, AND OVERLAP ENDS A MINIMUM OF 6". SITE PREPARATION IS MINIMAL, AND THERE IS NO STAKING OR TRENCHING REQUIREMENT FOR GRADES UNDER 12%. ARRANGE THE SILTWORM PERIMETER CONTROL IN A MANNER THAT IS APPLIED PERPENDICULAR TO SHEET FLOW. SLOPE INTERRUPTION: PLACE SILTWORM PERPENDICULAR TO SHEET FLOW AND CURL ENDS UP TOWARD THE TOP OF THE SLOPE. STAKE THE SILTWORM EVERY 6', AND OVERLAP THE ENDS BETWEEN 1 TO 2 FEET. PLACE A LINE OF DEFENSE AT THE TOP OF THE SLOPE, AND ANOTHER WITHIN 10' FROM THE TOE OF THE SLOPE. DITCH CHECK: SILTWORM IS EFFECTIVE IN A CHECK DAM APPLICATION AS WELL. BY REDUCING THE VELOCITY OF THE FLOW, RILL EROSION IS NEGATED. SILTWORM SHOULD BE USED AS A "SPEED BUMP" FOR TURBID STORM WATER. SILTWORM SHOULD BE INSTALLED WITH A SLIGHT ENTRENCHMENT, AND STAKED EVERY 4' IN THE DITCH CHECK APPLICATION. 1 SILTWORM NOTES AND SPECIFICATIONS 1 2 3

MAINTENANCE/PERIMETER DETAIL STACK DETAIL MAINTENANCE DETAIL NO STAKING REQUIRED IN PERIMETER CONTROL PERIMETER CONTROL ORIGINAL SILTWORM ADDED SILTWORM ACHIEVE ADDITIONAL DEFENSE IN EXTREME CONDITIONS ADD ADDITIONAL LINE OF DEFENSE WHEN SEDIMENTATION REACHES 50% OF THE HEIGHT OF THE SILTWORM
  15. 15. SLOPE INTERUPPTION/DITCH CHECK DITCH CHECK APPLICATION SLOPE INTERRUPTION STAKE AT EACH END AND PLACE STAKES AT 4'-0" MAXIMUM CREATE SLIGHT ENTRENCHMENT OR SADDLE WHEN INSTALLING
  16. 16. STOCKPILE Effective for Stockpile protection
  17. 17. PROTECTED AREAS/WETLANDS • SILTWORM…IS A PERFECT ALTERNATIVE WHEN THERE ARE AREAS THAT MACHINERY CANNOT REACH • PROTECTION OF TREE ROOTS...NO TRENCHING IN PERIMETER CONTROL APPLICATION PROTECTS BOTH TREE ROOTS, AND UNDERGROUND UTILITIES
  18. 18. SITE PREPARATION • HEAVY VEGETATION SHOULD BE CUT DOWN OR REMOVED. • EXTREMELY UNEVEN SURFACES SHOULD BE LEVELED TO ENSURE UNIFORM CONTACT BETWEEN THE SILTWORM AND THE INSTALLATION SURFACE.
  19. 19. MAINTENANCE • 50 % RULE. IF SEDIMENTATION OCCURS THAT TOTALS OVER 50% OF THE HEIGHT OF THE SILTWORM, IT NEEDS MAINTAINED. • OVERTOPPING: SILTWORM OR IF THE SILTWORM BECOMES OVERTOPPED, AN ADDITIONAL SILTWORM SHOULD BE ADDED ON TOP OR IN FRONT OF THE EXISTING SILTWORM WITHOUT DISTURBING THE ACCUMULATED SEDIMENT. • TORN: ADD REPLACEMENT SLEEVE OVER TORN AREA, OR CUT AND TIE END.
