What we do 

BEG Group erosion/filtration sock are generally placed along the perimeter of a site, or at intervals along a slope, to capture and treat storm water that runs off as sheet flow. Big Switch® and Phalanx Bio Switch filters are flexible and can be filled and easily moved into position, making them especially useful on steep or rocky slopes where installation of other erosion control tools is not feasible. With our product there is greater surface area contact with soil than typical sediment control devices, thereby reducing the potential for runoff to create rills under the device and/or create channels carrying unfiltered sediment.


Additionally, they can be laid adjacent to each other, perpendicular to storm water flow, to reduce flow velocity and soil erosion. Big Switch® and Phalanx Bio Switch can also be used on pavement as inlet protection for storm drains and to slow water flow in small ditches. Our Erosion/Filters are 8,12,18, and 24 inches in diameter.

Where we do it

BEG Group nontoxic plant based erosion/filtration sock is used nationally on environmentally sensitive wetland areas including, rivers, streams and other waterways.
