Do you worry about choosing a sediment control product or practice that meets state and federal requirements? If not, you should. If you specify or install a product that doesn’t meet state regulatory guidelines and specifications, you are at risk for having to remove and replace the product on the job site (at your cost), or worse, be held liable for non-compliance with the Federal Clean Water Act and State Erosion and Sediment Control Laws, each of which can carry large fines and even the potential for jail time.
Filtrexx SiltSoxx is the only compost filter sock that meets standard specifications in all 50 states and all jurisdictional Federal Agencies. Filtrexx is the only company that regularly conducts third-party testing from a laboratory certified by the US Composting Council’s Seal of Testing Assurance Program that utilizes state and federal agency required test methods, known as the Test Methods for the Examination of Composting and Compost (TMECC), to ensure compliance with all state and federal agency specifications.In addition, as state agencies adopt performance standards for sediment control products, Filtrexx is the only company that has conducted ASTM performance tests, performance evaluations by accredited research universities and Federal Agency laboratories, and publishes the results in publicly available peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Filtrexx follows this process to help engineers and designers minimize risk on any construction site and have the peace of mind that the products they are using are compliant with all applicable requirements and regulations – no matter where they are across North America. This process is also designed to raise the transparency, product quality, and product performance of the erosion and sediment control industry through leading by example.
