FILTREXX EROSION CONTROL COMPOST BLANKETS
Compost Blankets for Erosion Control & Absorbing Rainfall
Filtrexx offers four compost-based solutions available for construction and post-construction applications. Depending on the desired performance, our team can recommend the most suitable blanket, cover or strip for diverse stormwater management, soil stabilization and erosion control applications.
According to The Soil & Water Connection, "Research in North Georgia has shown compost applied to the soil surface, in the form of a compost blanket, can absorb 80% of a 4-inch rainfall event, and in a similar study at the same location compost blanket applications absorbed 100% of a 3-inch rainfall event for some replications…A one-year university study conducted on construction site soils (disturbed, compacted sandy clay loam) evaluated the storm water and water quality effects of a 2-inch compost blanket relative to hydromulch on replicated field research plots. Compost blankets reduced runoff volume by 50%, peak runoff rate by 36%, total sediment loads by 80%, nitrate-nitrogen loads by 88%, and total and soluble phosphorus loads by 83%".
