Two AquaDams®, 4' x 100', were coupled together to form a horseshoe shaped cofferdam in a canal so that a new canal intersection could be constructed to feed a new wastewater treatment plant. Installation time was approximately 4 hours.

The contractor chose to use AquaDams® because we introduce no fill material into the canal. The old-fashioned practices of sandbags, and earthen fill discharges using dump trucks and excavators, were not acceptable here.

Another old-fashioned practice, dewatering the entire canal, was not an option because of the abundance of aquatic life in the canal which has been found to be very beneficial to water quality.
