Communities need to create a plan for flooding protection for the community:
For coastal communities need to make sure their dunes are healthy. Those that have eroded due to storm surge can use the TBR200. TrapBag® TBR200 is the perfect foundation to rebuild sand dunes. Sand dunes help reduce the devastating impact from storm surge. While water may go over the top of the dune, the TrapBag® draw a line in the sand. In terms of minimizing erosion but more importantly reduce the flow of sand past the TrapBag® Sand Dune.
Communities that are based near a river prone to flooding should consider having TrapBags® in storage. This way, when a storm approaches they can rapidly deploy TrapBags®. Once deployed the TrapBags® will hold back the rising river waters protecting buildings and infrastructure.
For communities that are near hills or mountains needed to consider using TrapBags® as Cofferdam’s. This is especially effective in areas that were devastated by forest fires. TrapBags® when deployed can also help protect against Mudslides by slowing down the velocity of water runoff which helps in reducing erosion of the top soil.
Individual home owners need to assets their own risk and create a plan:
Property owners need to understand their own flooding risk. Some might need a small barrier to divert flood waters while others might need a complete flooding solution.
