SediMax® Sediment Retention Systems
Unprotected topsoil, especially on slopes and construction sites, is vulnerable to sediment migration and runoff problems. Using the North American Green SediMax® System can prevent much of the damage and eliminate the costs associated with restoring slopes, rebuilding drainage channels, and dredging ponds and streams. The SediMax System products include SediMax-FR® Filtration Rolls and SediMax-SW® Straw Wattles.
