Temporary Dams for Construction
AquaDam the Product
AquaDams were first developed in the United States around 1985 by David Doolaege who holds a number of worldwide patents for water filled cofferdams. Over time AquaDam and its associated techniques have evolved into a highly effective temporary dam system. AquaDam Inc. have a network of distributors across the USA, Canada and Australia.
When fully inflated with water an AquaDam adopts the properties of a semi rigid body with the ability to contour rough and uneven surfaces to form a temporary dam. The three principal applications for AquaDam are temporary dams for construction, flood control and water storage.
AquaDam comes in a range of sizes for use in water depths from 15cm to 3.3m in standard and bespoke lengths up to a maximum of 100m.
Joining collars allow AquaDams to be connected. The longest run of AquaDam to date is in Brandon, Manitoba where two 8km flood barriers run in parallel were installed to keep a road open vital to the commercial life of the city.
We offer three ranges of AquaDam optimised for their intended applications.
Construction AquaDams are designed for the construction industry for a diverse range of uses from lakes to rivers.
SpeedyDAM is a very small range of super-fast low cost temporary dams for water depths below 75cm.
Flood Protection AquaDams are aimed at Corporate and government users.
Each AquaDam size has a limiting maximum water depth. In temporary works / construction applications we refer to this as MCD or Maximum Controlled water Depth. In flood control application we refer to MFD or Maximum Flood Depth.
