Background Information and Challenge
The customer needed to hold back up to 6’ of water to work by the lakeside. Due to the environmental requirements of the area, they needed a product that could minimize damage to the ecosystem. One challenge was the lead time they needed this dam on site due to the fabrication plant being really busy at this time. The contractor had also not installed an Aqua Dam before.
Solution and Results
Aqua Dam was able to fabricate on time, and Layfield was able to keep with the project timeline.
After reviewing the installation instructions provided and a few questions from Southern Champion, they were able to deploy & maintain the Aqua Dam for the duration of the project.
Result: A happy customer that was able to save several thousand US in this project by using this dam. Minimal maintenance required during the whole project. They were able to reuse this Aqua Dam in another project. Now they propose this method of dewatering in every project they bid.
