New Boat Launch Turbidity Barrier
Type 2 Turbidity Barrier
Question: I am looking for a turbidity barrier for a new boat launch. We will be demolishing the old boat launch and building a new one. The site is a lake that is normally fairly calm, however wave heights up to 3 feet could occur. What do you recommend for this lake?
Answer: Thank you for contacting GEI Works! Using floating turbidity curtains for boat launch repair projects is quite common. Choosing the right turbidity barrier depends upon the water conditions in which it will be installed. As you are installing a turbidity curtain in a lake with possible 3 foot waves, we recommend using a floating Type II Silt Barrier.
The Type II turbidity barrier is the medium-level curtain for turbidity and silt control. These barriers are designed for moving water conditions with a moderate current or wave. Our Type 2 Turbidity Barriers in stock are in 100' and 50' long sections x 5' wide. However, we can manufacture other sizes and lengths to fit your specific location and requirements. All Triton Turbidity Curtains are made in the USA.
Triton Silt Barrier Options
Triton Type 2 Curtains are available in Contractor (pdf), DOT(pdf), Heavy Duty (pdf), and HD Permeable (pdf)models. This barrier is ideal for in-water control of silt and turbidity around dredging activities, pile driving rip-rap installation, demolition work, etc.The construction of boat ramps often displaces a significant amount of sediment, making a turbidity curtains an essential addition to the project. To ensure the best performance of your turbidity barrier for the new boat launch, you must ensure multiple anchors are used. Without the proper anchoring, your turbidity barrier will fail.
