Contour Ditch BoomTM

For Small Waterways and Ditches
The Ultimate Tool for Rapid Deployment

Item #EDB24-5

Contour Ditch BoomTM deployed in the city to filter water from washing sidewalks.

In Ditches and Small Waterways:

  • Recover Released Oils
  • Filter Sediments
  • Remove Oil Sheen

The Contour Ditch BoomTM is designed to hug the bottom, following the uneven contours, in ditches and small waterways where their shape makes it difficult to access and remove oils, oil sheen, and oil-borne contaminants. The flotation rides on the surface of the water, forcing the water to flow through the ADsorb-it® Fabric Curtain, trapping the oils, oil sheen, and oil-borne contaminants in the fabric matrix.

The Contour Ditch BoomTM has a chain ballast permanently attached in a chain gallery in the lower extreme of the 24 inch tall, 5 foot wide single-ply ADsorb-it® Fabric Curtain.

The ADsorb-it® Filtration Fabric provides approximately 100 micron filtration, thus the Contour Ditch BoomTM will act to reduce silt levels in the flowing waters.

The upper portion of the Contour Ditch BoomTM consists of a boom gallery with a 3 inch polypropylene boom permanently installed for flotation.

An 11 foot polypropylene rope is sewn in directly below the boom gallery, and extends 3 feet beyond each end to allow attachment of the Contour Ditch BoomTM to stakes or other retaining media.

The Contour Ditch BoomTM was designed for quick deployment in small waterways and ditches where an oil release has occured or where ongoing oil sheen is an issue.
