All sock users should be aware of federal, state and local laws, rules, regulations or permit requirements for silt sock.
Sock installed on 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 local municipality.
Stake or anchor as required by 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, tightening the ends together, add staking to each end. Where two sections meet on 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 sock below the normal high watermark to perpendicular to flow in a river and where the maximum incline is greater than 50%.

Unfortunately, the Silt Sock is 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.
