This wall will give the clinic some extra protection in case any clay or sandbag dikes fail. Sanford bought the walls after the city purchased 21-hundred feet of them for this years flood fight. An aqua spokesman says the more water against the walls the sturdier they become.

HELGE KROGENES - Aqua Fence Chairman: “So we use the water to help us. We also have this shield which goes in front of it. We also use the water as a shock absorber.”

The walls were purchased after this years flood expo showcasing new flood fighting technology.
