What is a DOT Type 1 Light Duty Turbidity Curtain and who is it for?
DOT Type 1 light duty floating turbidity barriers are ideal for containing silt in calm water applications such as ponds, lakes, canals, and waterways with light wind or current. These curtains float and are used to control and contain silt / sediment within an immediate work area thereby preventing anything from floating down stream and affecting marine life. Floating Turbidity Curtains protect our waters and environment.
DOT Type I floating turbidity barriers are normally used by contractors building bridges or working in, around or nearby a body of water. Why use a DOT Type 1 Light Duty Turbidity Curtain vs. another type of barrier: This particular model is recommended when compliance with DOT Type 1 floating turbidity curtain requirements is a factor and the marine construction project happens to be a calm water application.
