View additional Debris and Trash Boom Specifications on the debris boom product page. Sections of these booms can be connected together to form required containment lengths to stretch across rivers and other areas in need of containment.

The debris boom is easy to deploy from the shore or small work boat where floating litter, aquatic plants and trash can be collected at the shore line. This material can be readily recovered by the storm water or public works departments. Removable Trash Baskets or Nets simplify this process.

We carry several sizes suitable for rivers, lakes and canals. This economical containment boom design is suitable to contain small timbers, styrofoam, litter and aquatic plants and is the work horse of our debris boom family.

This is especially troublesome in locations that are enclosed or hard to access like weirs gates, and other structures where the flow depth is restricted or surface flows are obstructed.

  • HDPE Model (includes HDPE section panels and orange floats)
