There are many a times be it an emergency situation or some industrial or rescue work the need for water containment is required to finish the work as soon as possible. But the traditional sandbags and earthen barriers are not the most prominent choice because of many loopholes in their installation process and also the time they consume. Especially if we talk about the emergency situations like flood or dam leakage the thing that can avoid further disaster is the quick response.
So today we will be evaluating why cofferdams are a better choice when it comes to comparing with earthen barriers and sandbags. Let’s find out why earthen barriers and sandbags are not so effective in damage control and what are the reasons behind it:
Ease of Motion: We all know emergency situation provides minutest chance for damage control. So it is very necessary to act quickly. So if we have to consider earthen barriers then they are not so easy to build and if we talk about sandbags they are also not the best alternative because moving or taking them to the spot is a tedious task. On the other hand water filled dams are an easy option because they can be moved to any terrain within few minutes to few hours depending on the location.
