Enviro-Ridge: Ditch Barrier Innovation

Enviro-Ridge is an improved, patented, low- profile, lightweight, flexible and permeable plastic check dam for sediment control in ditch channels.

Enviro-Ridge’s patented transverse flexibility and unique permeable structure is designed to emulate natural vegetative filters. In the absence of grass or vegetation after road and ditch construction, Enviro-Ridge can provide a temporary “soft” structure with some of the beneficial characteristics of grass filters.

Enviro-Ridge’s primary innovation is its flexibility, which allows it to conform to uneven ground, offering effective performance across a variety of ditch shapes and forming a better “seal” when installed on top of Erosion Control Blankets.

Enviro-Ridge reduces water velocity by distributing water over a wider area of the ditch bottom, facilitating sedimentation and revegetation. By dissipating energy and reducing flow velocity, Enviro-Ridge causes sediment to settle near the upslope side of each berm. In addition, its triangular configuration provides a protective shelter for newly emerging vegetation.


DuraWattle™

A DURABLE AND REUSABLE SEDIMENT BARRIER.

It’s about time you were introduced to a sediment control BMP that you can count on. For over 10 years, the DuraWattle™ has been proving to be the roughest, toughest barrier on the block. It’s durable, reusable, long-lasting, highly effective, and super hassle-free.

SEDIMENT CONTROL APPLICATIONS

IT WILL HAPPILY REPLACE:

  • Straw wattle
  • Silt fence
  • Sand bag or rock bag berms
  • Angular silt dike
  • Chicken wire and rock concoctions
  • Hay bales

AS AN EXTREMELY EFFECTIVE SEDIMENT CONTROL BMP, THE DURAWATTLE™ IS A GREAT FIT FOR:

  • Perimeter control on soil, sidewalk, or hard surfaces
  • Drain inlet protection
  • Stockpile management
  • Ditch checks

PERFORMANCE AND FEATURES OVERVIEW
(A.K.A. WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT)

RECORD BREAKING EFFECTIVENESS

  • The DuraWattle™ tested at 96.6% sediment retention and 58% turbidity reduction. (ASTM D7351)
  • Easily installable and highly effective on sidewalk, soil, and hard surfaces.
  • Interlocking ends allow for a 100% continuous barrier. Its flexibility allows it to wind and turn around corners with ease.
  • Eliminates undermining with a trenched tail.
  • High flow rate helps to dewater and prevent ponding.
  • Low profile means good site visibility and cleanliness.

SO DURABLE YOU CAN RUN IT OVER

  • That’s right. Drive over it with heavy traffic and it will immediately rebound back into shape. Full site access, anyone?
  • The DuraWattle™ is built to last for years and needs minimal replacement on a job.
  • Made from highly UV-resistant materials. It holds up in the sun very well, unlike straw wattle or silt fence.
  • Manufactured 100% in the USA for ensured quality. California, to be exact.

REUSABLE AND COST EFFECTIVE

  • Reuse it within the same job over multiple phases.
  • Pick it up after a job and take it to the next one. Our customers report reusing up to 95% of the DuraWattle™ on their next job.
  • Extremely cost effective over time. Buy once, use for years, save money.

CONVENIENT AND SAFE

  • Easy to carry and safe to install with no stakes or protrusions. Workers’ comp friendly!
  • Helps to protect the environment by being unappealing to animals. It also doesn’t absorb or leech any pollutants.
  • Does not absorb water. This means you can uninstall and move it right after a rain event.
  • Only weighs 6lbs per 12ft section.
  • Ships compressed to 1800ft per pallet. That’s equivalent to 6 pallets of straw wattle!
  • REAP (Rain Event Action Plan) ready! This makes your compliance checklists a piece of cake.
