A 12ft tall, 270ft long AquaDam formed an L-shaped water-filled cofferdam at the corner of this pond, so a new pump intake structure could be built without taking the pond out of service. 8ft tall AquaDams were installed behind the 12ft tall primary dam, for extra support. Palm Desert, CA 2018

The 12ft dam has been allowed to unroll down the bank, exposing the open fill-tubes at the top of the bank. Discharge hoses are inserted into the fill tubes of the AquaDam. Palm Desert, CA 2018

A telehandler forklift is used to pull on a rope which is tied to the AquaDam; this is done to turn the AquaDam during deployment. Palm Desert, CA 2018
