This event was caused by the water gap being too heavy. The water wasn't able to push the gap open resulting in the water gap acting as a dam to the creek. This corner is approximately 180 linear feet from the creek bank. It was completely blown out. https://www.alabamagamefence.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=200650737 200650737 Gate Repair This gate was in the same line of fence as the previous picture. The gate was blown off of the hinges, when we found this area, the gate was only attached by the chain and lock that had been placed on it. The power of water is intense. https://www.alabamagamefence.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=200650738 200650738 Damaged Fence This fence was damaged after an extensive amount of rain. The water gap was approximately 100' from this location. The creek got out of its banks and all of the trash from the surrounding area created a dam with the fence and tore the fence down. https://www.alabamagamefence.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201139285 201139285 Damaged Fence Another view of the damaged fence. https://www.alabamagamefence.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201139286 201139286 Solutions Our solution to the problem was to add bracing to the area where this happened. We will come back in and install rubber on the bottom 18" of the fence to ensure if the creek gets out again there will be an area for the trash to pass through. This was all done with our ER Services. We were on site within 45 minutes of receiving the call and had the work completed in 4 hours. https://www.alabamagamefence.com/apps/photos/photo?photoID=201139287 201139287
