Sandbags are labour intensive, are very costly and can cause enormous environmental hazards

Tiger Dam KelownaTraditional sandbagging using a backhoe and thousands of volunteers can take days or even weeks to put up a dike to protect from oncoming floods. When the flood is over, try to find a single volunteer to remove the dirty rotting sandbags.

Sandbags hold contaminants like sewage, pollution, riverbank seepage, bacteria, bio hazards, etc. It is a federal mandate, that sandbags cannot simply be dumped in the local landfill, but must be taken away and disposed of as hazardous materials, at a great expense.

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.

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.

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.
