Excellent infrastructure for the best in Rockport communities

When The Islands of Rockport was designed, great care was taken to ensure excellence in both quality and usability. All of our residents benefit from the highest quality canal systems with widths of 100’ to 150’. Property elevations are significantly above FEMA standards allowing for slab on grade homesites. The Islands of Rockport is committed to ensuring the highest water quality within our canal system with circulation canals and our bubble curtain technology into its design.

A bubble curtain directs plastics to the surface of the water. A perforated tube is placed on the bottom of the waterway, and the bubble curtain is created by pumping compressed ambient air through the tube, creating an upward current. Plastic is directed into a catchment system so it can be properly disposed of.

  • Bubble curtain technology has several benefits, including:
  • It’s safe for fish passage
  • It extends across the full width and depth of the waterway
  • It operates 24/7 and can be monitored remotely
  • It increases dissolved oxygen, benefiting the aquatic ecosystem
  • It doesn’t interfere with boat or ship traffic

In summary, bubble curtain technology is a state‑of‑the‑art method for keeping waterways free of plastic waste and maximizing water quality.
