DOT Type 1 Turbidity Curtain – Light Duty for Calm Water

General Characteristics and Applications

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 and or current. These curtains float and are used in the water, around the work area to control, contain, and confine silt and sediment to the immediate work area, thereby preventing it from floating down stream and affecting marine life. Floating Turbidity Curtains protect our waters, marine life, and environment.

The DOT Type I floating turbidity barriers are normally used by contractors building bridges or working in, around or nearby a body of water.
