At the start of this project, a berm was created to elevate the end of the AquaDam® that contains the fill tubes. The berm was made of cement blocks, with a cement fill down the center for stability. The face of the cement blocks were covered with small gravel to make a smooth, slanted berm.

A protective layer was added so ground hazards could not damage the AquaDam®.

This picture shows the fill tubes going over the top and into the AquaDam®. The fill tubes must be elevated above the dam in order to retain the water.
