Sediment Filter Bags
Dewatering Bags are a small and economical solution for any site dealing with storm water runoff, dewatering or filtration. Easy to install, use, and empty, these bags help remove sediment so that flows from your site remain clear and free from debris. Bags have been effectively used on construction sites, dredging locations, ponds or in other areas dealing with polluted water.
Silt bags are constructed from an eight ounce (8 oz.) or ten ounce (10 oz.) non-woven filter fabric that effectively removes items as water filters through the material. Each bag features a single port that can accommodate hoses up to 4" in diameter. View Sizing Information for options on bag size, capacity and more.

Dewatering Bag Disposal
Standard procedure for disposing of dewatering bags involves a process of cutting open the bag and remove/disposing of the sediment. If soil contents are contaminated or should not be disposed of in the area, bags can also be placed in dump trucks, box trucks or dumpsters for easiest transportation to a disposal site.Back to Top
