Installing Erosion Control Wattles


Coir Wattle Installation

coir erosion control wattlesErosion control wattles are effective BMPs for locations where filtration, sedimentation control, or silt containment is a requirement. Often used to create a filtered water flow from your site, coir wattles help to retain sediment, dirt, and debris from water as it flows through the barriers. Erosion control wattles are available in diameters of 6 or 9 inches to accommodate the needs of your area.

Wattle Installation with Biodegradable Stakes

Wattle installation is very similar to that of coir log installation. Both sediment control products generally use stakes, either wooden or biodegradable stakes, in their placement and installation processes. The stakes can be placed either along the sides of the wattle or directly through the middle to keep it in place. Staples can also be used along the bottom of the erosion control wattles to stabilize their placement. Of course, these methods of wattle installation rely on soil, sediment, or dirt surfaces.

When coir wattles are placed around street drains and inlets, an alternative installation method is needed since stakes or staples can't be used with concrete or pavement. Sandbags, gravel bags, or other weighted materials are necessary to keep the wattles in place and to ensure effective sedimentation control.

Erosion Control Straw Wattles
