The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers used 5,500 linear feet of TITANBoom® turbidity barrier for a major restoration of Ship Island near Gulfport, Miss. The barrier not only endured through the 12-month project, it withstood the impact of a Category I hurricane and several tropical storms—with no damage to the adjacent sea grass beds. Its superior performance set a new industry standard for turbidity barriers used in severe marine environments, resulting in a new Class IV category.
