Sock is installed during the first sequence of the erosion control plans. Often additional pallets of sock are left on-site to address any issues that may arise to the excavation and construction phases of the project.
The homebuilder industry has shown an increasing interest in compost filter sock. Sock is used to wrap lots to protect roads, storm water systems and retention ponds. It is also used around concrete washouts, construction trailers, driveways and storm water inlets. During the building process sock stays in place longer than other erosion control methods and can be moved between lots. It is not damaged as easily from wind, snow removal and general building practices.
Sock is used around well pad sites, access roads, check dams for drainage swales and stock yards. Filter sock is installed around the perimeters of the well pads to remove storm water pollutants. Sock is installed after land clearing is done and before dirt has been moved.
Installed sock is used as a perimeter control along access roads, right-of-ways, stream crossings, slope interruptions, check dams and pipe yards as protection for the environment. This includes sensitive wildlife habitats, wetlands, water bodies, and ecosystems. Typically, sock is installed after the right of way clearing is completed and before any dirt is moved. Palletized sock installation is proven to be the most efficient and quickest way to keep the pipeline project moving forward.
