Your Specialist for Filtration,
Silt and Turbidity Control
The Silt Barrier, also known as the turbidity curtain, silt curtain, and silt protector, is designed specifically to prevent water pollution during marine operations. These barriers contain and control the dispersion of turbidity and silt (TSS and NTU) in a water body engaged in marine construction, dredging or environmental remediation activities.
Turbidity Curtain and Silt Barrier Types
Turbidity barriers include a Type 1, 2 and 3 model depending on your water conditions. In addition to these barriers, we also offer several containment barriers and best management practices (BMPs) to help with the containment of debris and oil, as well as the filtering of silt and sediment from stormwater.
All Containment Barriers

Dewatering, Silt Filtration, and BMP Products
|Dewatering Products||Stormwater BMPs||Silt Fence
Dewatering bags and stormwater bmps help to further control silt and turbidity through their placement inside storm drains (BMP's), along pond dredging areas (dewatering bags) or around a construction site
Silt filtration bags are a favorite for dredging operations. As water is pumped into these bags, sediment and silt are retained to allow for clean water to flow out of the bag.
Barriers and Containment Regulations
The enforcement of the Clean Water Act (1998) and NPDES phase II (National Pollution Discharge Elimination System) Regulations make protecting water resources a high priority. Federal and State regulators enforce these rules.
These products are designed to provide cost effective ways to avoid shutdowns or work stoppages. Products work to control turbidity, silt, and oil at the source, preventing further spreading of pollution. The correct use of these products will help keep your project in compliance and on track!
Additional Turbidity Curtain Resources
To further help throughout your containment or construction project, we also offer the following items to help install, deploy, and anchor your barrier in your location:
|Turbidity Curtain Variety
This turbidity curtain variety includes type 1, 2, and 3 barriers as well as several specialty barriers for all water pollution requirements.
|Type 1 Silt Barrier | Calm Water Pollution Control
The Type 1 Turbidity Barrier is designed to contain turbidity and silt in calm water areas such as ponds, lakes or swales.
Type 2 Silt Barrier | Medium Duty Barrier
|Type 3 Silt Barrier | For Rough Water Conditions
Type 3 Turbidity Barrier is designed for silt and turbidity control on various water area or construction projects. Built tough to get the job done.
|Containment Booms | Oil and Debris Booms
These containment booms are equipped to control debris, logs, and oil that exists in your location.
|Dewatering Bags | Construction Site Filtering
These dewatering bags and tubes are designed to help with construction site dewatering as well as larger sludge or lagoon dewatering projects.
|Marine Accessories | For a Successful Barrier Install
Marine accessories include tidal compensators, tow bridles, marine anchoring systems, buoys, navigation warning lights and more.
