The same plastic barriers are used in Australia. While they may be 
capable of retaining water .. I am yet to see one with water in it ... 
probably too much trouble and we do have a lack of water too.
Where weight is required the concrete ones look to be used, possibly 
easier and quicker  to do that than the plastic ones then fill with 
water, then drain etc.
