Global Flood Solutions America Launches Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System to Support Public Works, Construction Firms and Emergency Management Agencies

Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System Provides Temporary Dams and Levees to Simplify Underwater Building Processes

WESTWOOD, MA--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Global Flood Solutions America, market leaders in flood prevention, launches its Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System to support the Public Works Administration, construction firms, and emergency management agencies that have a need to utilize a temporary dam or levee. The Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System enables public work officials, engineers and consultants a cost effective, environmentally friendly approach to displace water from an area to allow for construction operations.

"Already proven in the field, our Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System is providing engineers a best in class system to be able to use conventional construction techniques at locations that are normally under water," stated Frank McNamara, President of Global Flood Solutions America.

When a construction plan involves building across or within a waterway, an engineer has a choice to either work under water, or move the water. Since working under water is generally not logistically or economically feasible, engineers find that the most effective and environmentally friendly solution to displace water from the construction zone is the Big Bag Cofferdam and River diversion System. 

Based on the latest water proofing technology applied in textile manufacturing, the Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System can be readily deployed for

  • Hydroelectric Dam Construction -- the Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System is used to divert water away from the shoreline of a river to allow for the foundations of a dam to be constructed.
  • Bridge Construction -- the Big Bag Cofferdam and River Diversion System can divert water away from bridge foundation positions, either on the shore or within the waterway.
