Effectively slow and interrupt runoff in ditches with Check Dam BMPs
Check Dam BMPs are generally used in ditches, channels, and swales to protect specific areas by slowing concentrated stormwater flow velocity, reducing bed erosion, and filtering sediment, pollutants and other particles. Check dam BMPs are highly effective at reducing flow velocities, simple to construct and require very low maintenance. MKB Company offers a variety of products for check dams including SiltSoxx compost filter sock, SiltSoxx RH rice hull filter sock, Straw Wattle, and RockSock. If the application requires pollutant removal features, our EnviroSoxx® pollutant filter sock line provides a diverse set of additives that can be incorporated to the filter sock in any check dam configuration.
