Permanent Flood Protection For Critical infrastructure

Communities and businesses depend on functioning infrastructure to survive. Ensuring that these important facilities, such as wastewater treatment plants, substations and power plants, are protected from flood inundation is a top priority. At FloodBreak, we understand the challenges that go with floodproofing these critical facilities. 

Often, these structures are located outside of dense urban areas and are difficult to reach in the event of a storm. Our passive automatic technology ensures that our floodgates deploy and protect without electricity or onsite personnel. Once installed, our floodgates provide permanent, 24/7 flood protection.

We have worked with water & energy facilities around the world to provide permanent, foolproof flood protection. Not only does it keep critical infrastructure safe, but it allows communities to continue as usual without important service interruption. At FloodBreak, we take that responsibility seriously.

Notable Project: Tacoma Central Treatment Plant

The wastewater treatment plant in Tacoma, WA is located on Puyallup River on the westside of the city. On average, the city gets 40 inches of rain a year, with some instances of 4+ inches of rain in a single day. As a result, the Puyallup river regularly overflows into the city. 

Recognizing the risk, the city of Tacoma selected FloodBreak automatic floodgates as closures in their perimeter protection to ensure that the city’s wastewater treatment plant was protected from these flooding events.
