FloodBreak® Roadway Gates are a cost effective way to raise levees that must extend across roads and highways to meet FEMA accreditation requirements.
A FEMA funded flood mitigation that included a flood wall and 10 passive floodgates saved Lourdes Hospital.
FloodBreak® passive flood barriers were installed as part of the IBWC Levee Flood Control project to raise those levees for FEMA accreditation.
Lourdes was one of two hospitals included as a best practice in FEMA P-936, Floodproofing Non-Structural Buildings.
FloodBreak has installed campus wide floodgates that protect the MD Anderson campus from floods while retaining the architectural beauty.
The FloodBreak Gate deployed automatically when streets flooded during the night, saving parked vehicles.
