Minnesota-based flood prevention company Progressive Innovations LLC launched an updated range of equipment for clients interested in high-efficiency sandbagging machine and levee builders.

Cambridge, United States - April 21, 2018 /PressCable/ —

Progressive Innovations llc, a flood and erosion control company based in Cambridge, Minnesota, launched an updated range of products for commercial, industrial and governmental clients interested in high-efficiency flood prevention technology. The company provides sandbagging machines and levee builders which can be used to create a wide range of flood applications.

More information can be found at http://progressiveinnovations.com.

Efficient flood prevention systems are essential in a variety of areas at risk from medium and large-scale floods. Progressive Innovations is a leading provider of high-quality flood control technology, working constantly to provide cutting-edge products for the quick and efficient building of levees, dams and other flood applications.

The Probagger 12® is a precision skid-steer operated sandbagging machine capable of producing up to 400 sandbags per hour when operated by a three-man crew. For maximum flood prevention, the machine is designed to optimize the amount of sand or gravel per bag, thus ensuring that the sandbags can effectively interlock and prevent water seepage.

Progressive Innovations also provides two high-efficiency levee builders. The Instee Levee Builder is a skid-steer operated machine which can produce an 18-inch levee at a rate of 400 feet per hour. These Fast-Built Levees are stackable, allowing users to create durable levees of various heights.

A spokesperson for the company explained the advantages of the Fast-Built Levees: “These Fast-Built Levees replace the need for sandbags in all flood applications except those in very tight places where sandbags are still required. This means that Fast-Built Levees can minimize an entire city’s need for sandbags in a flood event to less than 1/100th the current need. These tools are creating affordable flood fighting solutions for governments, businesses, and land owners.”

For clients interested in high-output levee building equipment, Progressive Innovations offers the heavy-duty Quik Levee Builder, capable of producing a 42-inch high and 200-foot long levee in under 90 minutes – the equivalent of a flood prevention system of more than 10,000 sandbags.

The recent service update is part of the company’s efforts to provide cutting-edge flood prevention technology for clients in the United States and world wide.

Hawaii lava evacuees grow weary as uncertainty drags on

May 20, 2018

PAHOA, Hawaii — Ed Arends grabbed what he could in the night and fled his 5-acre property, lava oozing from a crack in his neighborhood on Hawaii's Big Island. That was more than two weeks ago. He hasn't been able to stay at his house since. "It's disconcerting not being home, being displaced," Arends said. "I'm sleeping on a sofa in a guy's living room." As uncertainty drags on over what the Kilauea volcano will do next, those who were forced to leave their homes weeks ago are growing weary.

US, China putting trade war on hold after progress in talks

May 20, 2018

WASHINGTON — The world's two biggest economies are pulling back from the brink of a trade war after making progress in talks aimed at bringing down America's massive trade deficit with China. "We are putting the trade war on hold," U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said on "Fox News Sunday." After high-level talks Thursday and Friday, Beijing agreed in a joint statement with the U.S. to "substantially reduce" America's trade deficit with China — but didn't commit to cut the gap by any specific amount. The Trump administration had sought to slash the deficit by $200 billion. Still, Mnuchin said...

'World of uncertainty': Hawaii lava reaches sea, injures man

May 20, 2018

PAHOA, Hawaii — A volcano that is oozing, spewing and exploding on Hawaii's Big Island has gotten more hazardous in recent days, with a river of molten rock flowing into the ocean and flying lava causing the first major injury. Kilauea volcano began erupting more than two weeks ago and has burned dozens of homes, forced people to flee and shot up plumes of steam from its summit that led officials to distribute face masks to protect against ash particles. Lava flows have grown more vigorous in past days, spattering molten rock that hit a man in the leg. He...

Eels break records in Maine, where they sell for big money

May 20, 2018

PORTLAND, Maine — America's only significant state fishery for baby eels has blown past records for value as high demand from overseas aquaculture companies is driving prices to new heights. Fishermen in Maine search for the eels, called elvers, in rivers and streams every spring so they can be sold to Asian aquaculture companies as seed stock. Fishermen have sold more than $20 million worth of the eels so far this season, according to the Maine Department of Marine Resources. That is the highest total since interstate managers instituted a quota system for the eels in 2014. The previous record...
