“Sandbagging is labor intensive. Then when the emergency passes, nobody is left to dispose of the sandbags. With the IFCW panels, you only put up what you need. They’re light, so you only need a few people. We’re really happy with it…we could maintain the view of the river that way.” - Ron Arends, City Engineer, Cedar Falls, Iowa
