What is a Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtain and who is it for?


DOT Type 2 floating turbidity barriers are ideal for containing silt, sediment, and turbidity in moving water applications. These silt curtains 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 whenever construction occurs in a marine environment.

Floating Turbidity Barriers are normally used by contractors working in, around or nearby a body of water.

Why use an DOT Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtain vs. another type of barrier:

The Type 2 model is required when it has been spec’d in as a project/job requirement and/or when the marine construction project happens to be in a moving water application, such as a river bank.


Where are DOT Type 2 Medium Duty Turbidity Curtains used? Recommended Applications are:

  • Rivers
  • Inland Waterways
  • Harbors
  • Protected Ports
  • Lakes with wind and/or current


Enviro-USA’s Floating Turbidity Curtains are available with a Permeable or Impermeable skirt, in 50 & 100 ft sections. The depth is available as required by project requirements and can be as deep as 50 ft. Numerous sections can easily & quickly be connected together.

A permeable skirt is important if there is the need to allow water to flow through while containing silt, sediment or turbidity.  Enviro-USA’s Floating Turbidity Barriers are manufactured in accordance and in compliance with most United States DOT requirements.

NOTE: Float size is determined by skirt depth and or project requirements .

Enviro-USA’s Floating Silt & Turbidity Curtains are manufactured in Florida and comply with most project requirements.
