Deployment of an AquaDam®
AquaDams use a source of already available water to fill an impermeable tube. The starting point of an AquaDam® needs to be higher than the highest anticipated fill level in the dam. This usually means starting the dam on a river bank, a small hill, a pile of sandbags, on a special AquaDam® Starter Dam, or on an AquaDam® crate. Layfield can provide service technicians to show you how to deploy flood control AquaDams. Contact Layfield for further information on service technician rates and availability.
Installation of an AquaDam®
One of the strengths of AquaDam® is the ability to connect more than one dam together. AquaDam® can be made into long lines or can be turned and run in any direction. The connection of two or more AquaDams is enabled by the use of a collar at the end of each dam. These patented collars allow the next dam to be drawn tightly to the first dam, making a solid connection. The collars couple the dams when they are being laid out in a line. There is technically no limit to the length of dams that can be connected end-to-end. In flood control, many kilometers (miles) can be joined together in a long line.
