TundraGuard oil spill containment boom is suited to swamps, marshes, inland or boggy terrain. It is a special purpose lightweight boom for use in shallow, calm water environments where the water level may fluctuate and cause conventional booms to leak or fail due to grounding. American Marine, a division of Elastec, has been manufacturing quality floating boom and barrier products since 1967.

The upper chamber is filled with foam buoyancy that provides freeboard when the water depth increases and allows the boom to function like conventional curtain booms in deeper water. The ballast consists of a single water chamber; this causes the boom to rest on the terrain in shallow water and creates a seal to contain oil.

Larger versions of this concept are available (ShoreMax) with a twin water tube that provides more stability in conditions where there may be more water energy, such as tidal estuaries, beaches and coastlines.
