  • It takes an enormous amount of labor and resources to locate, fill and deploy sand-bags. The majority of sandbags are filled by hand one at a time; a two person job. Locating enough sand to fill all of the necessary bags is difficult and may involve travel and transportation of heavy, loose sand. Once full, the 45-75 pound bags have to be carried to the desired location. The sheer number of bags required for proper mitigation makes this a colossal task. In order to create a stable barrier, the sand-bags must be layered and stacked correctly; the higher the barrier the number of sandbags needed increases rapidly. Hours will be spent completing the process; protection for an average home takes 8 hours.

 

  • Cleanup Requires Significant Resources

    After the danger of a flood has passed, the task of cleanup can be monumental. Sig-nificant hours are spent carrying and emptying used sandbags. Soaked, contami-nated and heavy bags must be removed and disposed of, often far from the site of deployment. Sandbags will not stop all of the water from entering your home and coming in contact with your valuables, which then have to be cleaned and sanitized .

     

  • Flood Water Contains Dangerous Bacteria

    Sandbags that come into contact with flood water may be contaminated with multi-ple viruses, dangerous levels of bacteria and various toxic chemicals. Nature Jour-nal of Science found that samples of the flood waters swamping New Orleans taken from residential areas revealed dangerous levels of lead and coliform bacteria. These hazardous materials remain trapped in the sand, making disposal problematic.

     

  • Sandbag Costs Add Up Quickly

    While a sandbag itself may seem inexpensive, the costs involved with deployment and cleanup add up quickly. Protecting the average home requires over 300 sand-bags, costing almost 400 dollars (excluding labor). If you do not have enough sand or suitable material to fill the bags at your home, purchasing fill material will only add to the cost. Added to the hours of labor needed to deploy and remove the sandbags, event costs hundreds of dollars.
