A turbidity curtain, which goes by many names, is utilized on construction sites to keep sediment and silt, or turbidity, from getting into nearby water bodies during “dredging operations. Also known as a silt barrier or silt curtain, the turbidity curtain also serves the crucial function of protecting marine life from toxic levels of organics that can get into the water column without the use of the curtain.
And of course, maintenance of the curtain during regular use is a must. Inspections are to be conducted regularly, and the turbidity curtain must be strongly anchored so that strong winds will not upset the curtain and cause it to disturb the anchors and move out of place. Failing to keep with these tasks can result in accidents that cost time and money that could have been put to better use.
