Keyano College had approximately $55 million in property damages resulting from the flood that occurred in the spring of 2020. Flood restoration of critical infrastructure was completed by mid-August 2020, with some remediation still ongoing. As a result, Keyano College has not been able to secure overland flood insurance coverage and has been working with its partners to develop a plan to mitigate risk from future flood events.
“Keyano College is being proactive in our approach to avoid this level of devastation from occurring again. Utilizing a Tiger Dam system affords protection of critical infrastructure and gives the College time to develop a permanent flood mitigation solution,” said Tracy Boyde, Vice President, Infrastructure & CIO.
“The Tiger Dam system will be deployed in April and timed with the river break-up. The College will conduct an annual exercise of deployment as part of our emergency preparedness,” said Dale Mountain, Interim President & CEO.

[three-fifths-first]As sea levels rise more and more global cities become exposed to flooding. Around the world international communities are having to take extreme measures to guard their communities, businesses and properties from the risk of high tides and rising sea levels.

Some of the most exposed cities are not all developed nations. Many are less developed and at even greater risk because of failing infrastructure. That being said the risk for monetary loss leans more heavily towards developed countries, as wealthier low lying areas and cities have more to lose.
The top ten cities are Miami, New Orleans, Greater New York, Tokyo, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Nagoya, Osaka-Kobe, Tampa-St Petersburg and Virginia Beach.
U.S. Flood Control and Tiger Dams™ has a plan and a system in place to mitigation large areas of shoreline and river exposure.
Tiger Dams™ are water filled bladder technology, when deployed properly, this system may be able to divert up to
100% of floodwaters. Our System can be assembled within minutes using floodwaters or any water source.
Tiger Dams™ fill in as little as 90 seconds, with minimal man power and no heavy equipment. Each tube weighs 65 lbs. dry and 6300 lbs. when filled with water. They roll up for easy storage after each deployment.
Many large cities like New York and Miami already have Tiger Dams™ systems in place to protect most exposed areas of their cities.
