Slope Interruption

Reduce slope length and runoff velocity with slope interruption BMPs

Slope interruption BMPs minimize soil erosion by reducing the slope length, which dissipates the energy of overland sheet flow runoff. Slower runoff velocity reduces the potential of rill erosion on hill slopes. A rill is a shallow channel cut into soil by the erosive action of flowing water. Similar but smaller incised channels are known as microrills; larger incised channels are known as gullies.

MKB Company offers a variety of erosion control BMPs, also known as sediment retention fiber rolls (SRFRs), for diverse slope interruption configurations – SiltSoxx compost filter sock, SiltSoxx RH rice hull filter sock, SwitchSoxx switchgrass filter sock, and straw wattle. If pollutant removal features are required, our EnviroSoxx® product line can incorporate different additives to target stormwater pollutants.

Filtrexx SiltSoxx, the original compost filter sock, is now a part of the MKB family. Get the same quality and research-backed product that you’ve come to trust for sediment control.
Filled with rice hull filter media, SiltSoxx RH is the newest, lightest filter sock for your BMP toolbox. Use SiltSoxx RH just like a compost filter sock for standard sediment control applications.
Install more filter media sock each day with SwitchSoxx – a lightweight alternative to compost sock. Plus, the carefully sourced switchgrass fill promotes vegetative growth once your job is complete.
Straw wattles are a staple of any BMP toolbox. Choose from a selection of common wattles, advanced netting wattles, or biodegradable wattles.
Easy to install, hard to beat. Reliable and durable, multiple CFS Installer Netting types ensure the right fit for field installation with blower trucks or track machines.
The netting you choose matters. The most competitive, advanced, and recognized compost filter sock nettings in the industry are now available for you to manufacture and market.
Straw wattles are a staple of any BMP toolbox. Our line of Filtrexx straw wattle netting allows you to manufacture a variety of high-quality wattles.
Stop pollutants from leaving your site today – EnviroSoxx targets over 20 common post-construction stormwater pollutants including metals, nutrients, hydrocarbons, bacteria, pH, and suspended solids.
