Filtrexx DitchChexx™ are a three-dimensional tubular check dam device used in storm water drainage ditches and small channels on or near land disturbing activities to:

  • slow concentrated directional flow velocity of storm runoff
  • reduce gully erosion in ditch bottoms
  • remove sediment and soluble pollutants (such as phosphorus and petroleum hydrocarbons) present in storm water runoff
Filtrexx DitchChexx™ provide a porous physical barrier perpendicular to concentrated storm water flow designed to reduce and disperse runoff energy. They reduce erosion by slowing runoff velocity and dissipating concentrated storm runoff flow. They trap sediment and soluble pollutants primarily by filtering storm water as it passes through the matrix of the DitchChexx™ and secondarily by allowing water to temporarily pond behind the DitchChexx™, allowing deposition of suspended solids.


  • On or off site creation
  • Greater ground contact
  • Faster drainage time than silt fence
  • Low removal cost
