An innovative alternative to silt fence and straw wattle
In 2006, DuraWattle was installed at a new home development in Sacramento, CA. After eight years of being installed, our iconic red line in the fabric had faded to gray, but the installed DuraWattle was just as effective.
We do not recommend installing DuraWattle as the sole perimeter sediment retention device on sloped job sites with a single low point where runoff can flow. The product’s low profile can be overtaken when high flow sediment-laden water collects at the low point during heavy rain events.
