In areas where frequent flooding occurs, property can be properly and effectively protected with Flood Gates and Barriers. Because flooding is unpredictable and warnings generally late and limited, labor intensive products like sandbags are both inadequate and impractical. Sandbags do not meet the minimum requirements for watertight flood proofing set forth by the National Flood Insurance Program.
For large open areas such as a river or lakefront, a floodwall constructed of small - light weight manageable components may be the answer.
