Turbidity Barriers


Turbidity Barrier 

Turbidity Barrier is an economical , universal barrier for  intercepting oil spills and other floats on waters. It is made  of high strength vinly fabric with light weight foam inside.  The Floating turbidity barrier is widely used on rivers,  harbors , lakes, offshore oil platforms and other waters,  due to its fast install and easy operation.  

Turbidity barriers are used to keep the top edge of the barrier above water level. Standard depth of 5 feet with custom depths available. Staked barriers can be used in shallow water.

Construction Sites - Silt and dirt sediments from construction move through the air and eventually land in the surrounding water areas. Turbidity barrier sit in the water and stop silt, dirt, or debris from continuing past the barrier, eventually causing the sediment to settle to the bottom.

Environmental Remediation - Turbidity barriers can also be used in environmental remediation to prevent toxic chemicals and heavy metals from leaving the worksite.

Marine Life Protection - Turbidity barriers work to control the release of organics in the water column, which at concentrated levels can be toxic to marine life.

Oil Containment

Construction sites can also create hydrocarbons due to dredging operations. In this case, turbidity barriers should be lined with oil sorbent booms parallel to the barrier. This can be anchored directly to the turbidity barrier and will absorb the hydrocarbons before they can reach the barrier.

Construction Use: The ideal solution for any type of construction project, including:


  Bridge construction

  Dam removal and restoration

  Marina/harbor projects (bulkheads, piers, retaining walls)

  Port and terminal projects (groins, dikes, breakwaters)

  Ferry landings

  Pipeline crossings

  Coastal and shoreline restoration and rehabilitation

  Intake construction
