Godwin Pumps, joined forces with Fargo, N.D.-based distributor Bierschbach Equipment & Supply to provide Dri-Prime pumps for the flood relief efforts along the Red River Valley in Minnesota and North Dakota.
As a Godwin distributor, Bierschbach began making calls to local municipalities to deliver flood relief through its inventory of Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps.
“The City of Fargo took their first two pumps from us on March 23. We have now rented a total of 34 Godwin Dri-Prime CD100M and CD150M pumps,” said Mike Anderson, branch manager of Bierschbach’s Fargo facility. “Some of the pumps we have on rent are from our own inventory, and others were delivered from Godwin’s Helena, Mont., branch.”
With storm sewers backing up throughout the area, the Godwin Dri-Prime Pumps were used to pump flooded stormwater out of the backed up storm sewer, over the temporary clay dikes and into the river.
