Evaluation of Flared-End Inlet Protection Products for Sediment Retention

Mercredi, 27 Janvier, 2016 - 20:00

Various tests were performed to analyze the effectiveness of flared-end inlet protection products. The tests were conducted at the Erosion Control Research and Training Center (ECRTC) of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. These tests analyzed the ability of the products to prevent sediment from entering curb and gutter inlets via site runoff. The goal of these tests was to compare the various products and determine which would perform the best in preventing sediment from entering the inlets at construction sites. Several criteria were used in testing in order to make the best recommendations to the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT). The products analyzed in testing were (1) sediment log, (2) silt fence (with woven monofilament fabric), (3) silt fence (with IDOT-approved fabric), (4) straw bale, and (5) stone.  The full report is available online at https://apps.ict.illinois.edu/projects/getfile.asp?id=4732
