NCS Fluid Handling Flood Control Team
With the spring season comes seasonal storms and an increase in ground and mountain run off. Preparation can be the best defense to an imminent danger such as flooding, some say its not a matter of if it’s a matter of when, so why add more stress when resources to minimize damage are available. Not only do these flood conditions cause property damage it endangers everything around us. It is also well documented that prolonged high-water areas and floods can cause significant damage to roads, bridges and surrounding infrastructure if left unattended.
- Floods can interfere with drainage and economic use of lands, such as farming.
- Structural damage can occur in bridges, bank and sewer lines and other structures within flood-ways.
