Tiger Dams emergency flood control equipment is typically shipped in 50 foot sections on 4×4 skids.Tubes are 50 feet in length when they are filled (54 feet when empty) and the tubes are 19 inches in height. Each section is inspected, tested and certified prior to shipping. After a safety inspection of the deployment site, Tiger Dams are laid out, joined together and prepped for filling.
The Dams are filled individually and secured with straps and anchors if needed. If more than on layer in height is required, the second layer of dams are laid out and prepped for filling. Once they are filled they are also secured. The same deployment steps are followed with subsequent levels. After the flood waters have receded and the dam is no longer required, the system can be drained, cleaned and packaged for storage.
The emergency flood control equipment (US Flood Control Emergency Diversion Tiger Dams) has had extensive testing thoroughly at the University of British Columbia facilities.
