Flood control refers to all methods used to reduce or prevent the detrimental effects of flood waters. Flood relief refers to methods used to reduce the effects of flood waters or high water levels.
CWQA's Position on it:
As climate changes, it is our observation that weather events may have more of a chance of becoming extreme. When environments flood, vital equipment in the basement is often compromised. Recommissioning and replacing that equipment to recondition the infrastructure is a vital part in the recovery of the community.
How it impacts our members:
CWQA members are the ones responsible for their installed systems within a building. They are the experts on how to manage systems prior to flooding and afterwards.
What is CWQA doing about it:
CWQA has developed a number of bulletins on what to do before and after a flood event to prepare, protect, inspect and repair vital equipment in this type of disaster.
