Flood and Water Control
The fight to prevent flooding can cost millions of dollars in temporary dam raising or construction. And if floodwaters are not controlled, they can cost lives, millions in damaged property and an uncountable toll on livelihoods.

Sandbags are often used in flood fighting, but TYPAR® GeoCells have a number of advantages over them. Filling sandbags is labor-intensive and, because workers tire, devastating choices often must be made as to which areas to protect. TYPAR® GeoCells require much less labor than filling and stacking sandbags because earthmoving machinery can fill the cells with sand rapidly. In addition, TYPAR® GeoCells are built as a vertical wall, while sandbags must be stacked in a pyramidal fashion, with a much larger footprint and more sand required.

Lightweight and easy to build, but strong, rugged and able to withstand differing volumes of water, units can be carried in by hand, brought in on equipment or dropped from helicopters without damage. Units can be stored out of sunlight for years without disintegrating, and they are resistant to vermin and mildew.

TYPAR® GeoCells are effective as a rapid flood control barrier, and for levee construction, raising and repair.
