An 8' x 230' AquaDam® was installed to dewater a portion of a lake in Port Saint Lucie, Florida. A 42 inch diameter sewage pipe, 4,500 feet long, needed to be pulled under the three lakes (103' below ground) that divide the town.

The AquaDam® was started high on the bank so the fill tubes would remain higher than the inflated AquaDam®.

AquaDams® are easily turned as they are inflated and can conform to almost any environment.

The mud from the drilling was coming up in an unexpected location, 20' from the shoreline. The AquaDam® was put into a horseshoe shape to surround the area and keep the fresh water from the drilling from leaching into the salt water in the rest of the lake.
