Floodwater Mitigation

Introduction

Floodwater mitigation involves managing and controlling flood water movement resulting from high tides, higher run-off and winter storms through the use of flood walls. Cut-off walls should be used to manage low lying flood plains, manage seepage and at sites where groundwater is contaminated, to protect critical structures within these areas. Flood walls protect some of the nation’s most valuable assets including international airports and refinerys. Floodwall solutions prepare for, recover from, and prevent disasters related to climate change. Pre-planning is of the utmost importance when facing the risk of a flood. It is crucial to have flood mitigation solutions in place before an emergency occurs.

Testimonials

I want to thank you for getting things organized as quickly as you did for us and for the follow up calls and site visits that allowed us to get this work done and meet our schedule dates for the road work. As well, your product knowledge and ability to provide the technical support when dealing with the consultants was a major help in getting the system approved and installed correctly.

Bob T, Project Manager, MGP Construction Ltd.

Not only was there a substantial cost savings realized by the client, there was also a benefit to the road structure as well. The original design road structure number was 3.780 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 2,147,000. The revised road structure number using the TX5 is 4.260 and a calculated traffic (ESALs) of 4,593,000.
