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.

For more information on using Tiger Dams™ for sewage containment give us a call.

US-Flood-Control-Bio-Hazard-Containment

US-Flood-Control-Bio-Hazard-ContainmentThe Tiger Dam™ system may be able to contain spilled bio-hazardous materials, wastewater and terrorist intended chemical liquids. The 90 second rapid deployment diversion Tiger Dam™ weighs 65 lbs. when empty, can be immediately filled to 50 feet holding 6300 lbs. of chemical liquid or slurry type mixtures. Simply use a 2″ pump to pump the sand/debris into the tube. The tube becomes an airtight holding tank, with over 6000 lbs. capacity –remove as weight capacity changes with the density of what it is filled with. Once contained in the holding tank, the spill can be pumped out at a safe and convenient time into a bio-hazardous tank truck/water truck and disposed of according to environmental standards.

Contact us for more information on the use & deployment of Tiger Dam™ systems.

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.

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.
