I just saw a video of how and why giant tubes of water are better than sand bagging to protect homes against flooding (click link to see video).

well i have been in the science buisness for years now and no one can mess with mother nature. she takes her own corses. Its so hard to be conservative sceincetist because i belive mother nature takes arecosrse and were going through global warming nnot because of us but because the earth is going through a cycle.

Ingenious idea! But I was left with a few nagging questions: How does the flood water get into the tubes? Who (what company) does this? So, naturally, I Googled "aquadam" and checked out the details. I recommend the Design tab and Engineering tab (it only sounds intimidating -- there's lots of pictures). Happy learning!

Thanks for the link Kelsi. Another company that claims to be the largest manufacturer of inflatable dams is
U. S. Flood Control Corp. Click the link for photos and a long You Tube video.

Thank you, ARTIFactor! I was wondering why we don't hear more about these aquadams, but I guess the $350/day/tube price tag explains it -- especially when there's an ample supply of Minnesota-nice volunteers to make and install sandbag dams for pennies.
