An AquaDam® 2' x 50' was carried about a quarter mile (by hand) to the job site. The plan was to extend the dam about 3/4 of the way across the river and then bend the remaining footage downstream to concentrate the flow to one side.

The AquaDam® was started several feet up the bank to insure that it would reach its full height when inflated. Two 3" Honda agricultural pumps were placed on the bank to fill the AquaDam® from the stream.

The AquaDam® was then partially unrolled, and moved into position by hand slightly upriver of the riffle. The dam was then prepared for inflation.
