Deployment of an Aqua Dam®
Aqua Dams use a source of already available water to fill an impermeable tube. The starting point of an Aqua Dam® 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 Aqua Dam® Starter Dam, or on an Aqua Dam® crate. Layfield can provide service technicians to show you how to deploy flood control Aqua Dams. Contact Layfield for further information on service technician rates and availability.
Installation of an Aqua Dam®
One of the strengths of Aqua Dam® is the ability to connect more than one dam together. Aqua Dam® can be made into long lines or can be turned and run in any direction. The connection of two or more Aqua Dams 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.
