Not only does flooding endanger lives, it can harm the infrastructure and municipal buildings vital to the community. Flood prevention is a responsible way cities and counties can plan ahead and take proactive flood control measures to mitigate any potential flood damage. Sometimes, the flooding is worse than anticipated, but proper flood cleanup protocols can lessen the impact.

Flood Prevention and Flood Control
Flood control methods can be determined by the Emergency Management Department within a city or county municipality. One method of flood control is using sandbags or flood barriers to protect the perimeter of a property or building. Sandbags are available in a range of sizes, including a larger bulk bag size, suitable for forming a higher and stronger Flood Wall Barrier. An industrial sandbagger machine can facilitate the sandbag filling process. The sandbagger enables the city to fill sandbags at a much faster rate, which allows more sandbags to be available to the community in preparing for impending storms and flooding.

After a storm has passed and some of the flooding has receded, the cleanup begins. In the wake of the storm, areas affected by the city flooding can experience polluted streets and water bodies from floating debris. Straw or coir wattles can filter the water as it passes to the storm drains. This can help prevent debris from polluting the waterways and keep streets cleaner. Storm Drain Filters can keep the municipal water system clear by preventing debris from entering the grates.
