Catch Basin Log (Sock)
Drain inlet protection assists in the prevention of course sediment from entering the underground storm pipe system prior to the permanent stabilization of disturbed areas as in construction sites, or on the street after winter sanding. This is accomplished by using a sediment filter and trap around the storm drain. The device slows the runoff velocity, filters the runoff, and aids in sedimentation prior to the runoff entering the drain inlet.
Catch Basin Logs (socks) have been field proven to be the best temporary protection for catch basins. They are manufactured in bright orange polyethylene fabric with yellow stripes for maximum visibility and filled with weed free kiln dried wood shavings. This product takes just minutes to install; pop out the grate, surround the hole with the flap to the inside and reinsert the grate.
