How does a silt-sock operate? A silt sock helps to stop rainwater runoff and filter it prior to it reaching a sewer system. Silt socks capture solids and prevent them being carried into other locations. Silt socks are often utilized for areas where soil is highly erodible including steep slopes and zones with high rates of runoff like construction sites. The socks are very easy to construct and require minimal or no maintenance.
