Wisconsin Erosion Control Product Acceptability List (PAL)

The Erosion Control Product Acceptability List (PAL) provides guidance in installation and proper use of erosion and sediment control products. This list contains products that have been approved for use on State of Wisconsin airport, structure and highway projects.

The PAL and User Guide are for use by design engineers, technicians, and inspection personnel, municipalities, counties, contractors, and suppliers engaged in bridge and highway design, plan preparation, and construction for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT). It is prepared to support uniform application of designs, standard details in plan preparation, and field installation of erosion and sediment control devices, practices and other related items.

Although the material in the Erosion Control Storm Water Committee Product Acceptability List webpages has been tested, caused to be tested or reviewed for compliance by the Department, field staff may reject project materials deemed inconsistent with the specifications.

This is a list maintained for Wisconsin Department of Transportation projects. It may not be a complete list of all applicable practices for private and commercial projects administered or permitted through other agencies.

The presence of a product on an existing list does not constitute compliance with Buy America requirements. Approved product lists are intended to indicate compliance with WisDOT's approval application process. As indicated in the Construction and Materials Manual, CMM228.5, the Buy America provision appropriate documentation/certification is required for products that contain iron and steel, manufactured products, or construction materials, in accordance with 2 CFR Part 184 and 2 CFR Part 200. Please refer to the CMM and the referenced regulations for additional information.
