Almost every urban construction site, and most other rural mass grading sites have some type of perimeter erosion control measure in place. Silt fence is probably the most common type of construction perimeter control utilized in the United States. The fence system is typically used in combination with rock check dams, sediment basins, biodegradeable logs, as well as erosion control blankets which are designed to retain sediment in place where soil is being disturbed by construction equipment. The purpose of silt fence is to contain any and all sediment that may potentially leave the site after a rain event.
