Water-Gate flexible barriers offer the most effective stream cleanup and remediation techniques due to their rapid deployment and unbeatable construction quality.
Known for their optimal composition with release holes, Water-Gate's movable barriers allow you to control the flow of clear water at all times.
Simply open or close the release holes, located at the base of the barrier, to maintain the water level and prevent overflow.
Using the Water-Gate spill containment barrier helps firefighters, response teams and oil companies combat the spread of oil on the water.
Water-Gate anti-pollution barriers are your best ally whether it is to react quickly when toxic products are spilled in a stream, or for a planned water decontamination intervention.
Water-Gate offers a range of flexible and robust spill containment barriers in standard and custom sizes.
Their durable polymer fabric composition ensures a lifespan of over 20 years for hundreds of stream uses.
Temporarily blocking a stream or a small river to stop a pollutant floating on the surface of the water is an unlikely exercise in an emergency, unless you use the Water-Gate water barrier.
Your barrier will pay for itself just in the first year alone, and you can use it for several decades. In addition, the environment is advantageously positive for this type of water barrier.
The Water-Gate decontamination barrier doesn’t have to be filled with water since stream water or river water will enter the barrier and open it automatically.
In addition, thanks to its triangular configuration, the Water-Gate water barrier cannot turn over on itself when the water exerts pressure: It will therefore remain stable.
No, the implementation of the Water-Gate water barrier is very simple and doesn’t require any particular qualifications.
However, we invite you to do a test run in a small stream to familiarize yourself with the tool. You will see how easy it is to make a stable water pond with little effort thanks to the release holes at the back of the barrier.
To install the Water-Gate water barrier:
To remove the barrier, simply remove the rocks on the front of the flap and lift a corner of the barrier’s flap, to let the water flow under the barrier. The barrier will slip to allow the water to circulate. You can then remove it from the water, straighten it, fold it, and roll it. It's as simple as that!
Some large chains specializing in safety solutions offer oil absorbent products.
There is also mechanical equipment for extracting oil from water called a "skimmer" or an "oil skimmer."
