Contractor HEB Construction used four 25m x 1.5m EnviroSieve Turbidity Curtains fastened together to contain sediment from a 100m long section of road works with outstanding results.

The Turbidity Curtain has a flotation pontoon at the top, enclosed in a canvas sleeve with a non woven geotextile skirt for effective containment of sediments. The durable materials used allows contractor to re-use turbidity curtains multiple times.

A number of other environmental products were also used from Cirtex®, SiltFence, Super SiltFence, Silt Socks and DuraForce® geotextile for the effective control of sediment laden run off, protecting our waterways.
