Waterfront And Lake Flooding

Most resorts and resort towns are built close to water. Many are ocean side and subject to whatever those immense bodies of water throw at them.

Many others are built on lakes throughout the Americas and around the world. The great lakes are a perfect example as many large cities and small resort towns are built along their shores but many others are smaller but no less prone to the whims of weather.

This was proven last year as the beautiful resort town of Kelowna, British Columbia Canada came under attack when heavy rainfall and spring snow melt caused the Okanagan lake system to rise beyond its normal boundaries.

This put the shoreline of Kelowna and the downtown core at risk of flooding.

As the water rose US Flood Control was called to bring in their Tiger Dam™ systems to save the beaches and stop flooding of the downtown core. Continue reading

Golf Course Flood Control

Golf courses, beautiful, green and usually built in close proximity to a water source.

Golf courses are built quite often along rivers and water sources. It’s mostly for the ascetics. Where the problem lies is these courses are typical placed along the flood plain of these water sources.

It doesn’t take a lot of water to make a river overflow. Low laying golf greens and fairways are quickly flooded and flooding water brings silt, rocks and debris that can take months to clean up.

Tiger Dams™ are the perfect solution. The fact that they can be set up in 1/5th of the time it takes to manage any other flood control devise, like sandbags, should be a great incentive to find out how Tiger Dams™ can save your golf course.

Tiger Dams VS. Sandbags

If you had to protect your property from flooding either by rising water tables, hurricane or environmental disaster such as an oil spill, response time is one thing but having the ability to immediately put a deterrent in place can save your property and lives.

One of the factors that drives that time line is the difference between sandbags and Tiger Dams™.

Just the sheer number of sandbags required to protect one mile of ground is a deterrent to their use.

Just the fact that Tiger Dams™ can be set up in 1/5 of the time should be a tip as to how effective Tiger Dams™ are.

When tested at the ERDC facility in Vicksburg, Mississippi, Tiger Dams™ withstood a two week period of intensive testing with consistently, incredibly low seepage and no damage
