Sediment control practices are designed to prevent or minimize loss of eroded soil at a site. Typical sediment control practices focus on the following.

  • Physical filtration of sediment by trapping soil particles as water passes through a silt fence, drop inlet screen, fiber roll, etc.
  • Settling processes, that allow sediment to fall out of flows that are slowed and temporarily impounded in ponds, traps, or in small pools created by berms, silt fencing, inlet protection dikes, check dams, and so on
