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.
