SITUATION

During the Xmas flooding of Cumbria in 2015, newly formed Eden Flood Volunteers made it known that local residents preferred the use of HydroSack®s & HydroSnake®s to protect homes & businesses, instead of traditional sandbags.

IMPLEMENTATION

Gravitas International donated dozens of HydroSack®s (the equivalent of approx. 600 sandbags) to EFV, plus a number of PlumbPad®️s, to help with further protection of homes and with the clean-up of affected properties.

RESULTS

Within 2 hours of arriving in Cumbria, most of the donated HydroSack®s had been distributed to properties in need of protection and/or clean-up.
