Firefighters can rapidly dam a small brook or stream to create a water supply to draw water from. In rural environments where dry hydrants are not available, the Water-Gate is a convenient alternative as well as for wildland firefighting to draft from available sources. The portable dams are lightweight and easy to carry and install in remote locations. They do not need additional material for installation, no gas or electricity, no filling and no anchors required.
