Levees are built to safely keep water away from farmland, industrial areas, and cities. When water levels outside the dikes are expected to rise above the dike’s safety levels, a TrapBag® barrier system can create a quick solution to protect the area. Such as the temporary leeve we built in Baton Rouge, Louisiana pictured above.
TrapBag® is versatile and may be used for other kinds of protection from security barriers to storm-water control.
A cofferdam is a temporary dike built across a body of water and constructed to allow the water to be pumped out of the enclosed area, creating a dry working environment. A TrapBag® barrier cofferdam can be installed at a fraction of the cost and time of conventional solutions like a steel sheet pile wall. Up to certain water levels, the TrapBag® barrier can even be installed in the water.
