When it comes to cofferdams, you typically have two options: water filled cofferdams or steel built dams. At Dam-It-Dams we’re big fans of water filled dams, for a number of reasons, a few of which we’ll outline in this blog…
Tornadoes may not openly seem like an event that should be discussed in relation to cofferdams, but let’s start by noting that most weather anomalies are accompanied by excessive water levels. Think about it- you have raining and storms, hurricanes and flooding, and those are obvious weather situations. However, wildfires, require excesses of water which can be aided by a cofferdam. Then, heavy snowfall, eventually it has to melt, as it melts, it can cause issues of erosion, flooding, landslides, etc. Then there are tornadoes. With tornadoes comes heavy rainfall in addition to extreme winds. What’s more is that Dam-It Dams cares about your safety no matter what the conditions are.
The effects of the late winter weather, where snow conditions clash with rainy spring conditions, can be felt all over the United States right about now, in the forms of flooding, high winds, tornadoes, land/mudslides, and other weather and location anomalies.
For example, in the Mojave Desert in Nevada, they are experiencing whirlpools swirling in what is supposed to be a dry and hot climate. This level of water is unexpected in this area, to say the least, and the opposing currents in this small body of water create this simple vortex.
Dam-It Dams – not just for home uses
With the many uses of a cofferdam system for small home projects, the ease of use for the average handyman, and the affordable purchase or rental options for the average homeowner, it’s easy to forget that this wonderful cofferdam system is perfect for larger commercial and construction projects.
Our goal here at Dam-It Dams, Inc. is to provide varied uses and sizes of our on-site water-filled cofferdams at one low and affordable price for any damming, de-watering, and diverting needed on any site. Your safety is always our first concern, but that means our dependability is also our first concern because if you can’t count on our product, you aren’t feeling safe.
Ready For Spring
How many of us are ready for the snow and ice to finally be gone? Did I hear a unanimous, “All of us!” shouted at computer screens everywhere?
We look forward to having white Christmases, wearing warm fuzzy clothes, sledding, drinking cocoa by a fire, and taking in the majesty of beautiful fresh snow blanketing the homes and landscape all around us, but then reality sets in when it stays past its welcome. Personally, anything before December 15th and anything after January 10th is past its welcome.
We are rounding the corner, according to the prediction of the well-known groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, who heralds early spring or extended winter. This year, Phil has declared an early spring and after polar vortexes, cold snaps, heaps of snow, heavy rains in warmer areas, and frost quakes, we couldn’t be happier.
