Help is on the way for southwestern Iowa flood protection
January 28, 2011
The Omaha District of the US Army Corps of Engineers
has designed a significant flood-control system to help protect southwestern Iowa from flooding in the Missouri River valley, and with the floods of 2008 and 2010 both fresh in local memory, the project has been put on an expedited schedule for completion. Recognizing the urgency of the situation, Golden Harvest
put the gates on an accelerated schedule to keep the job on track.
One might ask: How accelerated? Well, for starters, the gate mounting thimbles pictured here were ordered on December 18th. The first set of thimbles shipped on January 5th -- less than three weeks later -- and the second set shipped on January 13th -- less than four weeks later. That's less than four weeks for the complete batch from purchase order to shipment -- including two Federal holidays, and time for submittal review by the Corps of Engineers. These thimbles are used to speed the pouring of the concrete walls on which the gates will be mounted, and the gates themselves are well underway, with delivery expected in just a few more weeks.
With more than 30 years of experience in water, wastewater, and stormwater control, we can say with confidence: Nobody delivers custom-built gates faster than Golden Harvest. And Golden Harvest's range of slide gates
, sluice gates
, flap gates
, and other water-control gates are of the highest quality we've seen anywhere. High-quality, competitively-priced, American-made gates, delivered faster than anyone else can. When you need water-control gates -- whether your project is an emergency or not -- Golden Harvest is the manufacturer of choice. For flood controls, though, nobody can beat a rush order from Golden Harvest.

of any type, whether your needs are urgent or not. Please feel free to contact us
