Flocculation logs, also known as flocculant logs or sediment logs, are innovative erosion control products designed to effectively reduce sediment runoff and turbidity in bodies of water. These logs are typically made from natural or biodegradable materials like coconut coir or straw, bound together in a mesh or netting. They are commonly used in construction sites, urban development projects, and other areas where soil disturbance is likely.

Flocculation logs work by using natural coagulants present in the materials to attract and bind fine particles suspended in water. As water flows through or around the logs, these particles are captured and settle out, leading to clearer water downstream. This process mimics the natural flocculation that occurs in healthy ecosystems.

These logs are especially beneficial in preventing sediment and pollutants from entering water bodies during construction or other activities that disturb the soil. They are often placed strategically along slopes, channels, and waterways to intercept sediment-laden runoff, protecting aquatic ecosystems and water quality.

In summary, flocculation logs serve as a sustainable solution for mitigating sediment runoff and enhancing water quality. Their environmentally friendly composition and natural flocculation mechanism make them valuable tools in erosion and sediment control efforts.
