For protecting the water supply, line the shoreline and any area with erosion with oil absorbent blankets. Designed to protect beaches and shorelines, these oil absorbents just need to be installed along the surf. Staying in place as the water passes through, these 10 feet by five feet sheets absorb oils before entering an ocean, lake, or river. Ultra-X-Tex material is used to remove oil without capturing any water in the process.
Oil can enter the water supply from a number of locations. If contamination is a possibility on your work or construction site, install any of these oil blankets as a stormwater or shoreline protection measure.
