A portable sedimentation tank is a compartmented tank used to pump through sediment laden water. The tank separates, traps and retains soil and sediment allowing clear water to be pumped to general stormwater, adjoining properties, and rights-of-way below the sediment-tank site.

Portable sedimentation tanks are used where an excavation extends below the seasonal high water table (requiring a sump pump) or on sites where excavations are deep and space is limited (urban construction).

The removal of sediment from watercourses is an environmentally friendly control. Preventing the discharge of oils, fuels, silts, and or dirty water complies with local government and EPA regulations.
