Document Description
A Use Permit for a straw wattle production facility within a proposed 70' x 142' building. Recycled rice straw will be brought onto the site and stored outdoors. The straw wattles will be manufactured indoors as needed. The straw wattles are tubes of rice straw used for erosion control, sediment control, and storm water runoff control. The straw is stuffed into toubes of plastic netting or 100% biodegradable burlap. Each tube is usually 8-9 inches in diameter and approximately 25 ft. long. The rice straw is delivered in bales, cut by the "Kirby Haybuster" and then fed intot he straw wattle machine. The straw wattle machine builds and stuffs the straw tubes, much like a sausage maker. Both machines are electric, reducing the noise and emission levels. The operation is enclosed in the building thus reducing noise and emission levels even further.
