An 8' high AquaDam® starts off from the shoreline with a walkway built over the top of it. The start of the AquaDam® extends up the wall and onto the walkway. This is an 8' high x 50' long close-ended AquaDam® with an attachment collar. The AquaDam® is partially filled. You can see the pump in the top middle part of this picture.

The sides of this AquaDam® were folded in during manufacturing for transportation purposes. This unit was unrolled by hand and not by internal water pressure. This allowed the AquaDam® to float so it could be moved into the necessary location. The sides will unfold later when inflated with water.

The first AquaDam® is now ready to be connected to the the second AquaDam®. Multiple connections are used here to achieve the require length. You can see the end of the collar (black) in the water at the end of the AquaDam®. The other half of the collar is around the last 20' of the AquaDam® that has been inflated with water.

An 8' x 100' AquaDam® is unrolled by hand down the boat ramp and out into the water. The black inside fill tube portions are shown here folded back over the top of the white AquaDam®. With the AquaDam® floating, it now can be moved in position to make a connection.
