For over thirty years, Portadam™ has provided the responsible solution for cofferdam and water storage needs.  Portadam’s temporary cofferdam equipment has enabled contractors to responsibly perform their in-water work in a dry condition. Vetted and purchased by the US Army Corp of Engineers for mission critical applications, the cofferdam equipment can also be used as an above-ground water storage system for hydro-fracking as well as property protection during flood conditions.

Portadam offers its proprietary Portadam equipment to the infrastructure construction arena. Additionally, Portadam and Rain for Rent have joined forces to provide construction companies with outstanding value and service for all their dewatering needs. This Partnership allows construction companies to focus on the project while Portadam and Rain for Rent’s combined experience enables the contractor to obtain a dry work space through its cofferdam, pumping, piping and filtering rental equipment.

Portadam’s above-ground water storage system provides significant environmental benefits as compared to in-ground impoundments. These include no need for blasting, no concern for Acid Mining Drainage (AMD), limited reclamation after use, decreased land use and disturbance and reduced trucking requirements.

Portadam’s water storage systems are commonly installed in the Marcellus, Utica, Niobrara, Bakken, Haynesville, Woodford and Permian Shale regions where its environmentally friendly design enables Oil & Gas Exploration and Production companies to meet DCNR and EPA regulations as well as local Township permitting requirements.

Water. Can’t do without it. Sometimes it’s where you don’t want it. Other times it’s not where you need it.  Portadam’s engineered system offers temporary solutions to both problems.  Our cofferdam equipment enables contractors to responsibly perform their in-water work in a dry condition.  Our above ground storage systems provide custom sized, large capacity solutions for energy and industrial applications.
