Trash Boom for Reservoir
Use Containment Boom for Reservoir Trash and Debris
Question: We have a lot of trash in reservoir areas where we are located. Do you have trash boom that would help these locations?
Answer: Hello there! Thank you for your inquiry. We do carry trash boom. These booms, also known as debris booms, are used to capture, contain or deflect floating items into a collection area, where the material can be easily extracted for recycling. These containment booms can be used in almost any area, including reservoirs, to control silt, debris, plants, and trash.
Choosing a Trash Boom for Reservoir Area
Similar to using a trash boom in various other applications, choosing a barrier for a reservoir location will depend on the water and wind conditions in your area and the size of your containment area. Other factors that will determine what type of trash boom you'll need will be determined by the amount and type of trash that needs to be collected.
We urge customers to consider all reservoir water conditions when looking for any kind of boom or barrier including:
- Water Flow
- Type of Debris Being Contained (small pieces of plastic or paper or large pieces of debris or timber)
- Wind Conditions in the Containment Area
- Tides and Currents in the Containment Area
If you are specifically looking for a Debris and Trash Boom to contain different plastics, wrappers, debris, and other materials like these, you might consider one of our standard Floating Debris Booms. These barriers feature PVC coated materials and are a reliable option for this type of containment.
