Silt Sock Instructions
- All sock users should be aware of federal, state, and local laws, rules, regulations, or permit requirements for silt socks.
- Socks installed on the vegetated ground can be installed without entrenchment. All gaps and ruts must be backfilled.
- Sock overlap should be in the direction of the flow with 24 inches minimum or as required by the local municipality.
- Stake or anchor as required by the manufacturer or stated under the approval.
- If sediment collects to 1/2 the height of the sock, then a second sock may be placed immediately upslope of the original sock.
- Sock joint is where two sock sections meet on a level grade: overlap the adjoining ends, tighten the ends together, and add staking to each end.
- Where two sections meet on the un-level ground: j-hook higher elevated end, stake, and begin new section just below. Make sure to backfill any gaps.
- Sock should be installed between 45° to 90° from direction of flow.
- Do not use socks below the normal high watermark perpendicular to flow in a river and where the maximum incline is greater than 50%.
Frequently Asked Questions
Unfortunately, the silt socks are not designed to be used in this situation. The sock and wood media within are not treated with a binding agent that would allow the concrete fines to precipitate out of the mix as the water is escaping.
