Inlet protection is a type of sediment control measure that is used to prevent sediment from entering stormwater inlets and drainage systems. They are typically installed at the inlet of a stormwater drainage system, such as a catch basin or curb inlet, to capture and filter out pollutants before they enter the system. It is used to protect the inlets from sediment buildup and clogging, which can lead to flooding and other issues. Inlet protection can be achieved through the use of various methods, including bag and sack filters, filter socks, and silt fences.
Inlet protection devices are typically made of fabric or mesh and are designed to capture sediment and debris while allowing water to pass through. At Terrain Civil we proudly partner with Dandy Products, SiltSaver, FlexStorm, Siltworm and Erosion Eel to offer our customers a full line of options for the varied applications they encounter.
At Terrain Civil, we offer options to prevent sediment from ever entering the grate and allowing it to be washed on downstream as well as options to allow the debris to enter the grate but then be captured for removal later. We can also offer temporary and permanent solutions as well as varying permanent replaceable filter options to address site specific needs.
