A solution against flooding: New elevetor at River Terminal, NJ - Case Study
River Terminal -New Jersey, USA Warehouse near Hudson River This is Geoplast worksite in Kearny, New Jersey. NEW ELEVETOR system was used in a warehouse near Hudson River and this has been a very succesful solution for this area. NEW ELEVETOR SYSTEM by Geoplast is the fastest and less expensive solution against floodings. The formwork can easily be installed in any type of worksite and creates a foundations of variable heights. The result creates a barrier between the ground and the building. A safe solution...
The Scientific Story of the Souris: Could the 2011 Flood Happen Again?
If the current wet climate state of the Souris River Basin continues during the next 10 years, there is a 2 percent chance another extreme flood, similar to that of 2011, will occur, according to a recent report by the U.S. Geological Survey and North Dakota State Water Commission. These and other findings about past and future flooding of the Souris are available in an interactive webpage called the Souris River Story Map, which was developed by the USGS, the North Dakota State Water Commission and the Internatio...
Hirschthal, Switzerland protected with WaStop DN1200 - Case Study
Location: Hirschthal, Switzerland Problem: During times of high river levels, flooding occurred in the town of Hirschthal. This flooding occurred when the river level was higher than the stormwater outfall. This lead to river water pushing back up the outfall pipe, and spilling onto roads and residential areas. Solution: A DN1200 (NPS 48″) WaStop inline check valve was installed inside the stormwater outfall to allow stormwater to flow into the river but to prevent any backflow from flowing back up the...
What is a Flood Risk Assessment?
Flood Risk Assessments (FRA) are becoming a very important part of the planning permission process. It interlocks with other areas of the planning process, and could cause weeks or months of delays if not done from the beginning. But what is a Flood Risk Assessment? A Flood Risk Assessment is a series of tests that are carried out to assess the level of flood risk of a given location. The assessment will check for flooding caused by groundwater, surface water, artificial water, rivers, streams, sewers and...
Assessment of the feasibility of floodwater utilization in North-East China
In order to alleviate the water supply–demand problem, a flood resource utilization strategy is proposed, called ‘Flood Utilization’. The strategy focuses on building large-scale water conservancy facilities and improving management measures. This paper presents the probability analysis of floodwater utilization in a confluence area, where a tributary joins a main river. Baicheng is used as the study area, where the Taoer River joins the Nenjiang River. After a large number of analyses, the main results and...
