Emergency Response

Project: High Volume Emergency Water Management Response

Location: Sparks, Nevada

Description: GrayMar emergency response team was called out to immediately address a massive volume of water that had overtaken an extremely active commercial business thus having a negative economic impact to the business by debilitating their ability to perform their primary operations.  GrayMar quickly remedied the situation by diverting and pumping over 1.5 million gallons of flood water from the customer’s property.  Depths of the flood water ranged from 1’-3’ throughout some high traffic and sensitive areas of the property.  In addition, with the water rising and temperatures dropping the site became dangerous for the customer to continue their day to day operations.  GrayMar developed a pumping system to safely and expeditiously discharge large volumes of water away compliance.  The system eliminated down time normally associated with truck hauling while greatly minimizing total labor costs.  GrayMar’s engineered pump system proved to be so efficient that the project was completed in half the time of previous contractors.  GrayMar’s team set up pumps at designated manholes and pumped the water to a central location allowing the flood waters to rapidly drop. The fast action taken by GrayMar prevented the customer from incurring property and equipment damage as well as allowed the customer to continue productive operations without disruption.
