Quickly Contain and Clean Up Oil Spills on Streams

Quickly Contain and Clean Up Oil Spills on Streams

Containing and cleaning up spills in ditches and smaller inland waterways can be difficult and time-consuming. Especially if the location is remote or there isn’t much manpower on site. Traditional methods for cleaning up these types of spills, such as underflow dams, containment/absorbent boom, and filter fences, can be ineffective and slow to deploy. Before you know it, the spill has spread miles downstream, costing large amounts in clean-up costs.

The ability to quickly contain a spill and slow the spread is an important consideration in spill response. The faster the spill is contained, the less damage a spill causes, and the less remediation that will need to take place after the initial spill has been cleaned up.

Instant Underflow Dams can be deployed in less than five minutes and only require two people. Learn how this time-saving method helps Ardent Environmental save their clients time and money and be better prepared for spills on water with Instant Underflow Dams.

Learning Objectives

  • List the benefits of incorporating instant underflow dams into spill response efforts

  • Compare the time and costs of traditional spill containment methods to the cost of instant underflow dams

  • Determine cost savings of implementing instant underflow dams for initial spill response preparedness
