Pump Station, City of Sacramento, CA (2003)

Because of heavy rainfall, the City of Sacramento Public Works Department
needed a quick secondary containment dam to block off a canal so that a
boil under Pump Station #2 could be worked on. The boil had a high
potential of eroding out the entire levy because of the recent high flows
in the Sacramento River.
A 6' x 143' AquaDam® was used to block off the canal, which serves as
drainage for the greater part of South Sacramento. The AquaDam® has
been installed and is being filled with water from the canal.
The AquaDam® was started well up the bank to ensure that it could be filled to its maximum capacity.
