               Temporary Silt Fence
1605.01   •Reduces water flow and retains sediment on-site
          •Overlap splice joints 18 inches
                                    •Optional outlet using
                                  Special Sediment Control
                                   Fence (Max width=6 ft)
                                  •Shift outlet to low point
                                             3-6 ft
          Temporary Silt Fence
             Special Sediment Control

          • Reduces water flow and retains
          • Used where flows and sediment loads
            will be too great for silt fence

                                      Often used
                                        by ESAs!
           Special Sediment Control Fence
          • Not to be placed in areas determined to
            be wetlands without proper permits

                                  Fold in 4 ft. wire mesh
                                  (24 gauge--1/4-in. opening)
            Temporary Slope Drain with
                 Earthen Berm
          • Carries concentrated runoff down a cut or fill
            slope without causing erosion
          • 12 in diameter flexible pipe
          • Sediment storage must be provided at top of
            slope near inlet or at outlet if slope drain
            discharges directly offsite w/o basin or trap

• Match PAM to your soil or suspended
  sediment and water chemistry.
• Reduce sediment load prior to PAM
• Keep the PAM logs moist.
• Create high flow onto PAM.
• Create high mixing (turbulence) after
• Allow for settling post-treatment.

   Surface Outlet (Skimmer)
• Skimmer is a dewatering device
• Primary dewatering during a storm event occurs
  over the emergency spillway.
• Opening in ‘C’ points towards the dam
Skimmer Basin with Baffle
          Emergency Spillway
•Line with Type 4 filter fabric for drainage
•Overlap seams 18 inches
•Secure edges in 5” deep trench and compact
•Secure fabric with 6” metal staples; 3 ft spacing
•Size weir length (width) per plan
•Significant rain should activate emergency spillway

                                              Weir Length (Width)
Skimmer Basin with Baffle
•Minimum barrel diameter = 4 inches
•Ensure orifice/plug are sized per plan
   -Example: 3-inch skimmer orifice
   with 2.5-inch plug
   -Contractor must insert “knock out
   plug” with 2.5 inch hole drilled in it
   into the 3 inch orifice


                                            Knock out plug
     Porous Baffle Spacing

• Baffles required in silt basins and all other
  temporary rock sediment dams:
   – If basin length ≤ 10 feet; 1 baffle
   – If basin length between 10 -20 feet; 2 baffles
   – If basin length > 20 feet; 3 baffles
                        Riser Basin
          • Serves large drainage areas with concentrated
            flows where other BMPs are inadequate
          • Riser pipe with skimmer drains the basin
          • Stabilized overflow spillway for excess runoff
1630.01   Riser Basin
1630.01                  Riser Basin

     •    Must have overflow spillway
     •    Top of riser is below bottom of spillway
     •    Attach skimmer 1 ft off bottom of riser
     •    Stabilize discharge outfall
     •    Anti-flotation materials required at base of riser
Infiltration Basin w/ Baffles
• Rectangular basin (L:W ratio of 3:1-5:1)
• 1-3 coir baffles, equally spaced
• Requires porous sandy soils
• Drainage area < 10ac
• Outlet devices
   – Infiltration
   – Weir (emergency spillway)
• Dug into ground or built above ground
Guidelines for Infiltration Basins
• Must be in Coastal Plain according to
  Major Soil Regions of NC Map in the Land
  Quality Design Manual
                  Scour Hole
• Riprap depressions located at outlet of pipe
• Designed to dissipate energy and promote diffuse flow
• Outfall area must be installed per the plans—some show
  depression, others show flat
         Level Spreader
                   Consist of a trough with a level
                   non-erosive lip

                   Purpose: provides a non-erosive
                   outlet for concentrated runoff by
                   diffusing the water
                   uniformly across a stable slope

Water Quality Benefits:
  •increases stormwater infiltration
   •mitigate downstream erosion and ponding
   •reduce the water velocity, which allows larger
   particles to settle
Maintenance for All Devices
Clean out sediment at ½ design capacity
