Tiger Dams Protect Wildlife on Eco-Sensitive Marshlands from the BP Oil Spill
June 7th Fox Business Channel Interview
Experts at the National Guard, Army, and BP – with clearance from the EPA – have chosen Tiger Dams to attempt to protect Louisiana’s coastal areas from the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill.
The Tiger Dams can be laid out in a straight line or zig-zagged in any shape to avoid or go around sensitive wetlands, beaches, and barrier islands as not to interfere with local wildlife or fragile ecosystems in the area. They are being be placed fifty feet from the shoreline minimizing tidal impact, enabling potential injured animals by the oil or natural causes to continue to take safe refuge on the beach (i.e. birds, turtles, etc.)
Tiger Dam’s primary function is to act as a barrier between the ocean and the land. They will attempt to hold back oil at the dam so that it’s not washed further on shore onto wildlife and property by deploying these dams along the East Shore of the Southwest Pass to the Mississippi River in Louisiana. To accomplish this, the dams are being filled with the water directly from the Gulf of Mexico using a safety screen as not to harm any fish or crustaceans from being sucked into the pump, using water to fight the oil. The top tube on the pyramid is a special containment unit that is initially pumped with water, but may be emptied in less than five minutes, ready to be pumped full of gooey oil and muddy debris that may wash up against the dam itself. Each tube can be filled with water (or discharged) in less than five minutes, and then refilled with more than 6,000 pounds of oil and gooey debris.
Made from American fabric and delivered directly from our warehouse in Kenner, Louisiana, Tiger Dams are fifty foot by nineteen inch cylindrical tubes that can be stacked in a pyramid shape up to thirty-two feet high and interconnected to form a barrier along the shoreline of infinite length. Responding agencies have chosen a 2-1 configuration, though higher configurations (such as a 9-8-…-2-1) can be deployed. Their environmentally-friendly design is a major benefit for this application in that they can be removed without leaving any footprint.
In preparation for the added horizontal pressure against the Tiger Dams system as oil washes on shore, as well as to accommodate for changing tides, special anchors are securing the dams in place. Normally in this situation the tubes would be filled with concrete instead of water for additional protection, but the heavy equipment required to do so is not able to make it make it into these sensitive areas.
