Flooding, Dewatering and Water Management
Flooding has many impacts. It endangers everything around us. Runoff causes soil erosion and sediment deposition which can affect spawning grounds for fish and other wildlife. Prolonged high floods can delay traffic in areas with limited elevation. 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 floodways. Waterway navigation and hydroelectric power are often impacted as well. Flooding impacts both individuals and communities, and has social, economic and environmental consequences.
In an effort to minimize the impact of flooding, NCS Fluid Handling Systems has recently partnered with a company who has a presence in the same areas as we serve in Western Canada and Quebec. This partnership is a proactive approach to flood control as well as emergency response to areas susceptible to high water levels. The product and services are deployment of portable dams, barriers or barricades and related pumping services.
Last year, spring flooding forced more than 2,500 British Columbians from their homes and threatened thousands more with evacuation alerts. If you are in the Okanagan or an area affected by high water levels and are at risk, contact us today.
This strategic alliance plays a critical role in safeguarding all Canadians from flood risk by providing a comprehensive suite of flood related solutions. This unique partnership will provide extraordinary services to flooding emergencies which will cause risk reduction, financial protection and community resilience.
