Containment for Sewage

Us-Flood-Control-Sewer-OverflowMany cities in older areas have combined sewer systems (sewage and storm water). During peak rain events, the system cannot handle the capacity and spill fertilizers, automotive chemicals and oils, pesticides, and trash run off from the streets down into the sewers directly into the river system, bypassing the sewage treatment. Containment, specifically placed could control large volumes of water accumulation to reduce the threat of the combined system reaching its capacity causing raw sewage from going into the river system.

It is estimated that over 860 billion gallons of this cocktail of sewage escapes sewer systems across the country

Tiger Dams™, can combat the effects of overflowing sewer systems and keep these hazardous wastes from finding their way into rivers and drinking water.

Flood & Hazardous Waste Containment

As if fast rising flood waters aren’t enough you might also have to contend with the many different degrees of hazardous waste materials those waters collect along the way as well.

Many cities in older areas have combined sewer systems (sewage and storm water). This makes them particularly vulnerable to leaking into the river systems in periods of high water.

Depending on proximity, retention ponds and stagnant irrigation ditches can also become part of the mix as river and water levels rise.

Tiger Dam™ systems are designed specifically to control these and many other hazardous flood conditions.

Tiger Dam™ systems are the ONLY system patented to connect together to create an impervious barrier for miles and at ½ the price of sandbags.
