Silt Curtain and Turbidity Curtain Design Criteria;

TYPE I – Should be used in protected areas where there is no current and the area is sheltered from wind and waves.

TYPE II – Should be used in areas where there may be slow to moderate running current ( up to 2 knots or 3.5 feet per second ) or wind and wave action, affecting the curtain.

TYPE III – Should be used in areas where considerable current ( up to 3 knots or 5 feet per second ) may be present, where tidal action may be present, or where the curtain is potentially subject to the wind and wave action.

Our silt and sediment curtain is used to

  • Control of sediment on water-based ( or adjacent ) construction operations
  • Control of sediment both from dredging operations and from dredge deposition
  • Mine tailings dams to reduce the number of suspended solids at decants
  • Pre-filtering of potable water to remove leaf litter and fire debris ( ash )
  • Control of toxic algae Control of aquatic plants
  • The screen of large solids in effluent treatment ponds
  • Mine tailings overflow screening
