Straw Wattles

Wattles are permeable barriers used to detain surface runoff long enough to reduce velocity. Their main purpose is to break up slope length. They have also been used in small drainage or on side slopes for detaining small amounts of fine suspended sediment.

The straw fibers are certified weed seed free. Straw wattles are dense by nature, thus they pool water unlike Curlex Sediment Logs that allow water to filter through its porous matrix. Straw wattles may be placed across channels bottoms, but their primary use is on hill slopes to break up slope lengths and slow overland flow.
