Lake Debris Containment Boom
Question: Hi, I am looking for trash booms or some kind of debris containment boom that I can place in my lake to help collect materials that are ending up on my side of the lake. I need a way to contain these materials so they do not end up contaminating the entire lake. Do you have these? If so, what colors are they available in?
Answer: We do offer debris containment booms that can help you to control the lake debris in your location. Orion booms come in several different models to accomodate your location and the type of materials you need to contain.
As a standard, the Floating Debris Boom is ideal for containing smaller trash materials and is commonly deployed to collect lake debris, small floating trash debris, small timbers, and some aquatic plants.
This debris boom typically features the following design:
- Foam Filled Floatation Collar: This allows the boom to float in water and contain trash particles to a single area.
- 22 oz. PVC Material: This strong material provides extra protection when dealing with trash, lake debris, or other environmental elements.
- Galvanized Steel Ballast Chain: A chain helps the boom maintain its barrier form so trash can be properly contained.
- ASTM Universal Slides: These slides allow you to hook sections together for a complete and strong barrier.
Standard sizing options for this particular debris boom includes:
- Section Lengths: 10 feet, 25 feet, 50 feet, or 100 feet
- Overall Boom Heights: 10 inches, 13 inches, 19 inches, or 20 inches
- Skirt Height: 6 inches or 12 inches
However, we can provide you with a debris containment solution for your specific needs. Sizes can be made to specifically meet your area if that's what you require.
