Turbidity Curtains and Remediation Projects
Silt Barriers Mitigating Sedimentation
Question: I am looking for a turbidity curtain to use in an environmental remediation project. It would be located in a stream with low flow that is 30 feet at its widest and would bethere for 2 months at a maximum. I am having a hard time finding anything made for shallow streams that are not 50 - 100 feet long. I need something about 3 - 4 feet high as we have designed for the two year flood but the maximum water depth is only a few inches, around 8 - 12 inches. The product has to trap water-borne particulates to prevent downstream sedimentation of the river.
Do you have a product that stretches into the upland area and can be secured there? Are all of your products designed to be secured within the stream channel? Your answer would help me determine the best lengths.
Floating Debris Boom Options
Since you are looking for something shorter than this, you might also consider using a Floating Debris Boom. These booms are extremely similar in design, but will instead feature a shorter bottom skirt. Depending on the type of material you are needing to contain, these booms could work well
Floating booms such as the Trashmesh Log and Debris Boom is a high impact, foam filled molded, bolt-on float boom, perfect for inland, bays, harbors, power plants, intakes, dams, and marinas. With this debris boom, you can collect logs and debris. It also serves port security and is made for long term use.
