Godwin Pumps, a Xylem brand, has deployed six-inch pumps from branches in Houston; San Antonio; Jacksonville and Lakeland, Fla.; Atlanta; Bridgeport, N.J., and Evanston, Wyo., to help relief efforts throughout the south after Hurricane Isaac.
“There were five coastal parishes, among others, affected by Hurricane Isaac,” said John Bienvenu of Better Pumps & Solutions. “Some have had recent levee improvements that helped prevent flooding. Others, in lower lying areas, experienced greater floods. Those not greatly affected by flooding still suffered large power outages.”
Godwin, in conjunction with Better Pumps & Solutions, which has branches in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, La., deployed 167 pumps.
