Mitigating the Consequences of Increased Flood Hazards in Municipalities

Digital event

Watch our digital event. During the event we will go through the driving forces behind increased flooding and how this will affect the sewer and stormwater systems. You will also learn the basic concepts for how modern check valves will minimize the problems in a variety of different scenarios.

The consequences of flooding

For the last 27 years the sea levels have risen by approximately 4 inches (100mm) - an average of ⅛ inch (3.3mm) per year. It is partly attributed to the increase in ocean temperature, which causes sea water to expand. Another contributing factor is the added water from melting glaciers.

The combination of these factors makes coastal areas more exposed to being flooded than ever before and the problem is likely to increase in the future.

  • Long term problems for inhabitants
  • Effects the environment in a negative way
  • Generates major costs for cities and inhabitants
  • The financial impact will lead to higher taxes
  • Could delay other important infrastructure projects
