- Irrigation Water Storage
Fruitland Ridge, CA (2003)

This AquaDam® needed to be self-supporting since there was no bank to start it from. For
this reason, the usually open end of the dam is closed with a zipper, and the fill tubes
come out through the top. A standard diameter garden hose is then inserted into the fill tube.
These 4' AquaDams® can hold approximately 10,000
gallons of water. The laborer in the yellow vest standing in front of the
dam shows how large these AquaDams® are.
Once the first unit is filled, a second is attached by means of the coupling collar.
These two AquaDams® will store water until the local well runs dry. At that time a
pump will be inserted into one of the AquaDams® and the stored water will be used to
irrigate these thirsty grapes during the dry summer months.
