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.

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

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.
