– Environmentally Sensitive Area Protection
– Protected areas with light wind and water velocities of 1 ft/sec
– For ponds, shallow lakes, small streams and marshes.
– Enhance current Perimeter Sediment Pollution Control Measures

Turbidity Barriers are a BMP designed to restrict the flow of sediment-laden storm water runoff from a construction site, to keep it contained in a limited area, and allow the sediment to settle out before being carried into adjacent or joining watercourses. TOUGH GUY® Turbidity Barriers are manufactured by AER-FLO, Inc., the world’s largest producer of these critical devices.

The most commonly used turbidity barrier, this floating curtain is used in protected areas where current velocities are less than 1 feet per second. Typically sold in units 5′ x 50′. This type of site may include ponds, shallow lakes, small streams and marshes. Anchorage consisting of stakes or concrete blocks may be required to keep the barrier in its position. Barrier sections can be connected using rope lacing or nylon zip ties, which are furnished separately.
