Product Description

AquaDam® is a water filled portable dam or aqua barrier, that can be positioned to contain or divert the flow of water. AquaDam® is lightweight and easy to handle, and can be used in virtually any location. On-site requirements are just a portable pump, and the usually abundant local water supply. AquaDam® is environmentally safe and specifically designed to provide rapid deployment for flood control or water diversion situations. The result is a flexible and stable water filled barrier that can act as an aqua barrier to contain, divert, and control the flow of water. The unique combination of properties makes AquaDam® ideal for a wide variety of applications. Some of the more common uses include: Stream crossings during pipeline installation; rapidly deployed flood water control; water containment during repairs to bridges; used as an aqua barrier to prevent erosion control through diversion or containment. Layfield provides installation services for AquaDams and can help you assess which AquaDam® will be right for your project.
