Straw logs used to break up slope lengths and slow overland flow
Straw wattles are dense by nature, thus they pool water unlike Sediment Logs that allow water to filter through its porous matrix. Straw wattles may be placed across channels bottoms, but their primary use is on hill slopes to break up slope lengths and slow overland flow.
