Turbidity Barrier for Dredging Project
Question: I need a turbidity barrier for our dredging project. I am located in Michigan and looking for a quote on Turbidity Curtains. The water flow is about 1.5 knots, so I think that means I will need a Type 3 curtain. I need two (2) 3' x 100' and one (1) 6' x 50'.

Triton Type 3 Turbidity Curtains
Triton Type 3 Silt Curtains are made with 22oz. marine grade PVC, and feature either a 6", 8" or 12" float. The bottom of each curtain has a galvanized steel ballast chain to give the bottom of the curtain additional weight. However, this weight is not enough to keep your barrier in place. Anchoring is essential to the success of your silt barrier, espeically in a type 3 environment. Contact one of our team members to ensure you are correctly anchoring your barrier.
Additional Triton Turbidity Barrier Options
- Type 1 Turbidity Curtain: The type 1 silt curtain is commonly used in locations with calm waters (such as your conditions which is less than 0.25 knots).
- Type 2 Turbidity Curtain: The type 2 curtain is used for moving water locations. These barriers are typically not recommended for locations with currents above 1.5 knots.
- Type 3 Turbidity Curtain: The type 3 curtain is our strongest barrier and is used for the roughest water conditions. These includes areas with significant water flow or waves.
