Dewatering Bag 6×6


Heavy Duty Dewatering Bags, also known as sediment filter bags or silt bags, are an easy and economical option for any site looking to remove sediment or silt from their discharge. Each Heavy Duty Dewatering Bag is constructed from a thicker non-woven geotextile with higher filtration properties than Standard Dewatering products. They reliably filter even finer particles to catch and contain sediment as muddy water is pumped from your site. These filtering bags are made from a non-woven geotextile fabric that is needle-punched to allow water to flow back out while retaining fine soils and particles. Its high filtering qualities make it ideal for pumping trenches, construction sites, dredging areas, ponds, lakes and for dewatering in municipalities or plants. Dewatering Bags are the most common option for removing unwanted materials from discharge or stormwater runoff. Bags are generally smaller in size, and ideal for dumpsters, drop boxes, or other small dewatering areas.

Their components meet or exceed minimum DOT Erosion and State NPDES Sediment Control requirements as outlined in 40 CFR 122.26. GEI’s Dewatering Tubes help keep runoff clean and keep your site in compliance with local and federal stormwater regulations.
