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.

The Tiger Dam™ system is easily stored and can be in place in hours as opposed to sand bags that might take days and that is often the difference between stopping flooding and losing everything.

As a city in an area that is high risk for flooding why wouldn’t you have a Tiger Dam™ system on standby and a team trained in implementing the system before the next flooding event occurs?

Call us for more information on how to get a Tiger Dam™ system for your city or town and the expert training to put it in place. 1- 504 – 813-7303.
