Aqua-Barrier® Installation and In-Field Use

Installation/Removal Procedures

There are three primary types of Aqua Barrier installations. The following descriptions of the various types of installations are simplified, and are only meant to give a general overview of the installation process. More detailed installation information must be provided by a trained HSI Services, Inc. representative on all Aqua-Barrier installations.

Moving Water Installation

When dynamic or moving water is present at the installation location, barriers are positioned properly by controlling the ends of the unit with hydraulic equipment (i.e. 200 series or larger track hoe, crane) and/or anchoring at least one end of the barrier at the shoreline.

Dry Land Installation

If the location where the barriers are to be installed has no water present, the barriers are simply unrolled and inflated. This style of installation is generally used in anticipation of flood waters.

Standing Water Installation

If non-moving water is present at the installation location, the barriers are buoyant and will float on the water’s surface. The barriers are placed at the water’s edge, unrolled on the water’s surface, and floated into position.

Using Multiple Barriers

Aqua-Barriers can be overlapped at any angle necessary to accommodate your project site’s layout!
