FILTREXX RUNOFF DIVERSION
We help divert stormwater runoff, naturally.
Runoff diversion is the Best Management Practice (BMP) used to redirect stormwater runoff from areas at risk of flooding or eroding towards stabilized areas, storm inlets, conveyance systems, containment areas, or stormwater treatment systems. Filtrexx® SiltSoxx™ is a three dimensional tubular sock designed to act as a sediment control and filtration device, generally used up slope of disturbed areas. In runoff diversion applications, our Soxx™ technology helps divert excess surface water from one area for use or safe disposal in other designated areas.
Filtrexx runoff diversion systems can be installed above steep slopes to limit surface runoff onto the slope, across long slopes to reduce slope length to prevent erosion, below steep grades where flooding, seepage, or sediment depositions may occur and around areas that are subject to damage from runoff. Our team of experts design runoff diversion and other stormwater management BMPs in close collaboration with our customers. Let us collaborate on your next project development.
