The Erosion Eel

The Erosion Eel is a highly effective erosion control device used at a construction site to prevent sediment from leaving the job site. The Eel is used in lieu of other conventional BMP items.

The Erosion Eel

  • Is made of a woven polypropylene geotextile
  • Is filled with recycled tires
  • Requires no staking (except in concentrated flow)
  • Is a hardy and sustainable BMP

Sizes Available

  • 9.5" dia.x 10'L Eel. (150 lbs) (14 per pallet)
  • 9.5"dia. x 4.5'L Eel (40lbs) (28 per pallet)
  • Custom sizes from 12" to 20" dia. available

The Gutter Eel

The Gutter Eel is designed much like the Erosion Eel. It is a weighted sediment tube filled with recycled tires. The difference is the Gutter Eel has a manufactured overflow weir designed into the bag. This helps reduce ponding in roadways during heavy rains.

Simply put the Gutter Eel in front of your curb inlet and and it will do the rest!

Gutter Eel is available in 7' and 10' lengths.


The Floc Box

The Floc Box is a mobile dewatering trailer. It is a polymer enhanced dewatering system. It can be conveniently delivered to any job site. Like all Friendly Environment products, it is made to be used over and over again.

The Floc Box

  • Accepts a 3" pump  (can be customized)
  • Uses the FlocMat as biodegradable filters
  • Replaces dewatering bags
  • Is a durable and sustainable option for dewatering



FlocMat is raw jute matting that is impregnated with polyacrylamide. Flocmat is useful under the Erosion Eel in check dam applications to insure bonding with the ground. It can also be used in spots that are prone to reeling.

  • Available in bags of 4' x 25' lengths




SMARTfence® 36

SMARTfence® 36 is a heavy-duty High-Tensile/High-Modulus woven geotextile sediment fence designed to replace silt fencing with wire or 12.5-gauge chain-link backed supports and replace proprietary silt fences with attached reinforcing elements. The woven geotextile is specifically designed and fabricated to withstand high-tensile stresses and prevent excessive material elongation and strain. The fence system will resist fence deflection and ultimate failure due to ripping, sagging, or overturning as hydrostatic forces associated with excessive backwater depths and debris flows move against the fence.

The SMARTfence® 36 is a value engineering approach

The SMARTfence® 36 is a value engineering approach, providing a strong siltation fence equivalent in strength and stiffness to that of wire and 12.5-gauge chain-link backed sediment fencing for less cost, significantly lower carbon emissions during materials manufacturing, and less material waste produced at the end of the service life of the fence. SMARTfence® 36 is also a 100% American-Made product.

The table below is a comparison of 14-gauge wire-backing and 12.5-gauge chain-link fence structural characteristics versus the same structural properties for the Smartfence® 36. The Modulus of Elasticity is a measure of material stiffness.
