Minimize Erosion and Sediment Runoff

StrawWattle Rolls are made with  straw. When they are placed on the face of slopes, they intercept stormwater runoff, reduce its flow velocity, release the runoff as sheet flow, and provide removal of sediment from the runoff. By interrupting the length of a slope, the roll can also reduce erosion.

  • Use instead of silt fence to reduce erosion at construction sites - stops sediment and other debris from entering retentions ponds, lakes and other water bodies.
  • Environmentally-friendly - units can be left in place to eventually "mulch in" with surrounding environment.
  • Less intrusive and conspicuous than silt fence - perfect for use in ongoing residential and commercial construction projects.
  • Installation is quick and easy - simply dig shallow trench and stake in place.
  • Can be used as check dams to reduce water velocity.
  • Requires no maintenance or upkeep.
  • Helps comply with NPDES, 40 CFR 122.26 (1999).

Ultra-Stormwattles Can Be Used


  • Along the toe, top, face, and at grade breaks of exposed and erodible slopes to shorten slope length and spread runoff as sheet flow.
  • At the end of a downward slope where it transitions to a steeper slope.
  • Along the perimeter of a project.
  • As check dams in unlined ditches.
  • Down-slope of exposed soil areas.
  • Around temporary stockpiles.
  • As a sediment filter surrounding catch basins.
  • As a sediment filter in front of curb inlets.
  • For soil stabilization after forest fires.
  • To promote revegetation.
