Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- Over the years, many inventions have been discovered while trying to make flood season easier.

This is just one of many different dams invented to try and eliminate sandbags.

The Aqua Dam, trap bag, even a rapid response flood barrier have been created.

But when it comes down to it, sandbags are just easier and not as expensive.

Mark Bittner- City of Fargo Engineer: "Some of them are designed for more of the flash floods and they are more designed to just deflect the water. Where as our situation, we don't have flash floods, the water comes out very slowly.”

Bittner says the influx of different inventions often come out, with any kind of natural disaster.
