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.
