Problem
 

 

 

Flooding is a growing concern for millions of people and municipalities nationwide.

And yet, we continue to rely on ancient and inadequate systems

for managing, redirecting, and thereby mitigating the onslaught of floodwaters.

 

Current Tools Utilized Today:

   

So what can stand between a community and a flood?

 

Not Much Until Now!

Solution

WaterBlocks New Solutions:

Multiuse Flood Control Barrier Systems Have Arrived!

Our Trailers can be Included (upon request):

 

 

 

WaterBlocks Emergency Management Services Network:

Achievement & Traction

Over the past three years, we have had extensive discussions with municipalities and various governmental agencies reflecting a common theme professed by all: ‘an additional source of flood barrier supply and support is needed. Our communities’ needs can’t just rely on FEMA, NGO’s and the occasional local vendor.

 

WaterBlocks™ have many useful applications including crowd – traffic safety and controlconstruction site protectionnaturalresource protection and conservation, and more.

 

The Barrier Sharing Rental Network is a digital system whereby WaterBlocks™ can be rapidly transported on short notice as a cost-effective response to pending flood threats – anywhere in the US or around the globe. Because when it comes to mitigating flood damage and destruction, as delivery of large quantities of barriers on short notice is the key.

  • We anticipate that our primary stage objectives center around the sale of WaterBlocks™ themselves will generate the revenue necessary to support our continued future growth.
  • The establishment of the Barrier Sharing Network offers WaterBlocks a sustainable, long-term (20+ years) source of revenue and ever-expanding rental and licensing opportunities.
  • The Barrier Sharing Rental Network is an intangible asset consisting of the software platform (not yet built) – which may ultimately be patentable in its own right – and management thereof.

 

We will seek to secure sponsorship from major corporations, governmental bodies, private foundations and non-profit organizations to provide the acquisition costs of large numbers of truckload inventory. We are a capital intensive company and will always be raising capital to expand our barrier inventory. Our inventory base will provide thousands of linear feet of WaterBlocks.™ Barriers that can be instantly assigned, transported and deployed to participating municipalities, counties and states in need of flood protection or any other WaterBlocks™ application.

 

Utilizing our new Barrier Sharing Network, a forward-thinking revolutionary solution enables communities and emergency responders to have timely access to WaterBlocks™ solutions, on a cost-effective, as needed basis.

 

Flooding and other Disasters strike with little notice, but WaterBlocks™ empowers municipalities, governmental agencies, and NGO’s and emergency responders to be better equipped with new ‘on call’ Tools and Services to protect lives, communities and our environment.

 

Invest in WaterBlocks™ dba Locking Line Barriers Corporation with confidence as we prepare to go to market with our revolutionary WaterBlocks™ product line and related services.  Funds from this raise will be used to support our efforts to; begin operations, recruit staff, create inventory, expand marketing, promotions, and product line sales at trade shows as well as promotional events  with municipalities across the country and globally, research and development, and general operating expenses.

 

Market

 

The Market & Industry

 

 

To examine the current market viability of WaterBlocks™, Locking Line Barriers commissioned a detailed study looking at the market acceptance, need and overall demand for rapidly-deployable flood protection and multi-use barrier systems.

 

Additional focus was spent on means of access including whether the assets are rented through a web-based asset and cost-sharing network rather than outright purchased per standard convention.

 

Since the WaterBlocks™ target market is the emergency authorities and responders of municipalities, government agencies and NGO’s, research consisted of a nationwide sampling of 36 randomly-selected jurisdictions. Our research resulted in these key findings:

 

  • Market need & demand for flood barriers far exceeds the current availability of a sufficient supply
  • Until WaterBlocks™ are brought to market, the need & demand will remain unfulfilled for the foreseeable future

 

It would take more than 800 Truckloads of WaterBlocks™  (806 to be exact, with 63.5 miles of barriers) to fulfill the demand for flood barrier systems - and that's just for the 36 respondents surveyed. At the currently-discounted MSRP cost of $130,000/truckload, LLB sales would be $104,780,000 for the 36 respondents polled so far.

       

 

Competition

There are, of course, a number of existing plastic barriers on the market – most being designed for traffic safety and control, their uses are limited, rendering them useless for flood control or liquid overflow management.

 

 

Business Model

We intend to formulate a worldwide licensing program that enables WaterBlocks™ – or a variant thereof – to be sold and distributed overseas. In fact, we have already received licensing inquiries from Mexico and Holland, however our primary objectives at this time are product sales and the establishment of the Barrier Sharing Network (BSN) in the United States.

 

WaterBlocks initial sales efforts are focused on six key target markets:

  1. 1.Product Sales to government agencies and municipalities
  2. Product Sales to major corporations in the Construction and Petroleum industries
  3. Distributorship Development and Expansion domestically and globally
  4. Sponsorship sales to major Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) departments for BSN inventory expansion
  5. Crowdfunding Revenue Sharing Agreement Investments in BSN inventory expansion
  6. Revenue Sharing Agreement Investment Sales and Grants from Charitable 501c3 organizations for BSN inventory expansion based on the following:

 

We estimate that $21 trillion is held by the more than 80,000 non-profit organizations that fall under 501c3 status in the US.  NOTE: this is our estimate of the potential participants from the global group as reported in the chart.  

 

With this in mind, we have also established an agreement with the Disaster Support Foundation (DSF), a 501c3 non-profit who will seek grants and donations to acquire and provide WaterBlocks™ for the Barrier Sharing Network for a share of the revenue.  This relationship provides potential charitable sponsors with the opportunity to leverage tax-deductible donations for positive social impact affecting countless communities nationwide.

 

 

 

 

WaterBlocks™ are steel-reinforced, interconnecting plastic units that link together to create a diversionary wall of protection.

 

 

 

WaterBlocks can be DOUBLE STACKED …(like Legos)

August 2021 - Stockholder Update

 

To All WaterBlocks Shareholders

 

Greetings to All!   And Welcome to our new Title III CF Offering Portal, TruCrowd.

 

As you may have noticed, WaterBlocks fund raising stopped on StartEngine on April 30. This was over our strong objections and after having paid their platform renewal fees in advance.

 

We undertook a thorough investigation of other Crowdfunding platforms and discussed our options with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Today, we are announcing what we view as the best outcome to these efforts.

 

TruCrowd will serve as WaterBlocks new SEC approved funding Portal to continue our fund raising efforts as before.  Only our portal has changed – not the offering itself. This means the perks which were offered on StartEngine will be continued on TruCrowd until we as a company terminate the offering, at which time it will be determined which shareholders qualify for perks and what type of perk they are qualified to receive.

 

Prime Trust will be the escrow agent. The same as before with StartEngine, however, TruCrowd provides us with better visibility into the escrow account on a real-time basis so any stockholder transaction issues can be resolved more quickly than was true on StartEngine.

 

Also, we have retained Colonial Stock Transfer Company, Inc. to be our stock transfer agent and Corporate Registrar for this funding raise effort and all stockholder accounts will be consolidated at Colonial.  This change affects all classes of shareholders.  This is a work-in-progress as Colonial sets up to maintain all our stockholder records.  Soon, each WaterBlocks shareholder will be able to login to their own account at Colonial and see their stock holdings there, including any bonus or perk shares they may have received.

 

Going forward, Colonial as our stock transfer agent registrar will be the primary point of contact for all shareholder records.  Shareholders will need to contact them (or simply login to your personal account) to change and update; email addresses, physical addresses, phone numbers, etc.  Colonial will be generating and sending out shareholder notices once onboarding has completed, so keep a look-out for Colonial emails.

 

Your participation in launching our new site would be very much appreciated, by adding any positive comments you may have to the comments section on the site.  This would be very helpful, and now would be a good time to consider increasing your WaterBlocks holdings to help us rebuild our momentum.

 

It has taken 90+ days to complete this effort and during this time we have been hard at work, with Venture Capital presentations with three upcoming shows on the calendar and pursuing WaterBlocks marketing efforts to develop a Pilot Project with various governmental entities in Florida.  A Business Status Update is forthcoming as our efforts progress.

 

I thank you for your participation and support as we proceed forward.

 

My Warmest Regards, Joe Daniluk, CEO

8/29/21, 11:00 PM - With Hurricane Ida raging up through Louisiana right now (still a Cat. 2 after hitting the coast as a Cat. 4 twelve hours ago) I can't help but think of how much this product needs to be available to the communities in it's wake. Best of luck to everyone affected.

 I'm glad the stock is available again to more investors. I like the look of the Tru Crowd site and the opening page for Waterblocks. There is more info right there at first glance to grab your attention and leads into the detailed presentation of the product and the company. The whole thing looks cleaner and more modern than before, similar to the newest, refreshed Waterblocks.net site. The whole thing unfolds naturally, it keeps you reading to the end. The result is it looks better than a lot I've seen from better funded and fully staffed startups. Added to everything else you have to do to keep this company moving forward, well you guys must be putting in serious overtime. The SEC filings alone are a fill-time job. Anyone reading this should hit the SEC filings link near the top of this offering and skim through the thirty filings (to date) required to get this far. As a long term investor, the hard work is appreciated. But I don't want to sound like a PR Dept. (that you don't have) so I gotta tell you that little round blue emoticon-thing creeps me the hell out. Please don't ever put more than one on the same page.

Hi Deering,

Thank you for your valuable feedback and continuing input. Emoticons, when they appear on videos, are not always ours to pick - :)

We've been extremely busy updating everything in advance of the MONEYSHOW in Las Vegas. Sept. 12-14. Also, preparing all the materials and,
then, arranging shipping of 2 palette loads of marketing equipment and WaterBlocks Barriers have kept us focused on this event. 
During this time we have been maintaining active discussions with our governmental contacts on potential projects.

Thanks, again, Deering!

Warmest Regards,
Joe Daniluk

Great idea!  Something that can be quickly and easily set up to protect our homes and cities.  The need seems enormous, and it is growing with the impact of climate change.  This project needs all the support it can get.  From investors, the government and everybody.  Keep up the good work!

Joe Daniluk - Issuer    

Hello Grace,

Thank you for your comment.  You are right on all points. 

Climate Change is a new curveball for mankind to deal with, and we all need to

join forces, come together and make every effort to fight climate change. 

We also believe Water Resources will become a major issue in the near future, with a serious need

to better handle, manage, and transport water. 

And we intend to be on the frontline of these battles, developing new technology and tools to help. 

We Look forward to your further participation.  My Regards Joe / CEO

To be clear, Startengine investors will retain their investment and just be moved over to Colonial as the one stop consolidation point - no action required? I am still excited about your operation, but a little frustrated on the delay, no doubt due in some part between whatever disagreement occurred. With what we are seeing in Tennesee and around the world, there is no time left to bring this technology to market. I am looking to increase my stake also.

HI Mark,

YES! -- To be clear, Startengine investors will retain their investment and just be moved over to Colonial as the one stop

consolidation point - no action required?


As for the remainder of your comment; I’m delighted to hear you are still an excited investor,

and considering an increase in ownership of the company.  I too am a bit frustrated by

the Covid impact on our momentum, but remain fully motivated to continue on.  Because our products and services are so desperately needed and our mission

to help save lives communities and our environment becomes more critical

as the impact of climate change continues increase in fury and frequency.  Also

I’m focused on rewarding and benefiting our shareholders, an incredible group of supporters.  I want us to succeed!  


Don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance

(info@waterblocks.net).

My personal regards, Joe / CEO
