Sentinel, a Beier Radio company, has designed and manufactured the control panels for the Bayou Petit Caillou Floodgate in south Louisiana. The 110 feet wide floodgate is a dry dock barge, which is moved into place creating a temporary barrier against rising canal waters. The floodgate was installed on September 2, 2015. The Sentinel system automatically controls pumps and valves of the gate to insure that it both sinks and rises in a level fashion regardless of current or other environmental impacts.
