DrainKnit is a sturdy tubular knitted polypropylene geo textile that has been engineered specifically for controlling erosion, containing, and/or retaining sediment in disturbed areas. It is a mesh tube filled with organic filter material that is placed perpendicular to sheet-flow runoff. The DrainKnit, which is oval to round in cross section, provides a three-dimensional filter that retains sediment and other pollutants (e.g., suspended solids, nutrients, and motor oil) while allowing the cleaned water to flow through. The DrainKnit can be used in place of traditional sediment and erosion control tools such as a silt fence or straw bale barrier.
