If your upcoming construction project involves dredging of any sort or if the project will be located near any body of water, large or small, a turbidity barrier is a definite must. Why? Because it will allow you to conform to every state and federal regulation requirement out there that has any environmental standard attached to it, from adhering to the Clean Water Act to the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System’s requirements. With a turbidity barrier, you too get to protect the environment in your own special way.
With a turbidity barrier, which is referred to commonly by many other names, including silt barrier, silt curtain and turbidity curtain, you further protect your project by making it operate entirely on the level. No questions will be asked of where the construction materials and sediment will be going as you wind through your project, because the answer will be there in front of anyone who shows up on your site to evaluate you. With reference to the environment, no questions will be raised nor will any assumptions be made about the impact the project has on the surrounding natural environment. Everything will be gathered through the turbidity barrier and properly disposed of, keeping the project up to code and perhaps even boosting the productivity levels of everyone involved too. So whether your project involves building a new marina, removing or restoring a dam, developing a ferry landing, or creating a port or terminal project, a turbidity barrier will help.
