Terrebonne installs temporary levees in Gibson, Bayou Black

The smell of rubber filled the air on Tuesday as about 20 National Guard soldiers unrolled temporary dams that will be used to protect portions of North Bayou Black Drive from further flooding.

Terrebonne Parish received funding for nearly 2.5 miles worth of Tiger Dams, or temporary levees that are inflated with water, from the state. Local fire departments will fill these dams with water.

Tiger Dams™ Fighting Floods

Twenty Reservists from across B.C. gathered at CFB Esquimalt’s Urban Search and Rescue complex to become the first military members in BB trained on a simple alternative to sandbagging.

The Tiger Dam flood control system – originally designed in Canada – fights water with water. Each 15-metre Tiger Dam section replaces about 500 sandbags and folds easily into the next one to make a continuous barrier (the province of B.C. bought enough to cover a 26-kilometre stretch). A small team can set-up a barrier in a fraction of the time it takes to make a sandbag wall and best of all, there’s no shoveling.
