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-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.

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

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.
