As part of the regions continued commitment to combating river flooding in the red river valley, ICS based in Grand Forks ND are working to install flood protection systems including temporary, demountable flood walls. Known in the industry as “Deployable Stop Logs” these light weight, easy to store and install are designed to quickly either increase the over all effectiveness of a permanent dike, or close off roadways and train tracks in the event of an impending flood. When the need has passed the modular system can be disassembled and stored until inevitably the need again occurs.
