This provides ballast to keep the curtain vertical in the water, and hems are sealed around a rope with grommets to allow attachment to each other with rope or bolt/nuts/washers.

Turbidity curtains are manufactured in three basic types for different water conditions and project needs - Type I, II and III for slow, medium, and fast moving waters, respectively. Depending on the state or locale, variations to these basic types/specifications exist and are often tailored for specific project needs. U.S. Barricades manufactures turbidity curtains to specification for many state DOT requirements in addition to the standard types.
