Flood Protection

Today, severe weather events, rising sea level, climate change, hurricanes, all too frequent “100 year and 500 year” storms put cities, buildings, utilities, industrial operations and transportation networks at ever-greater risk for flooding of critical infrastructure and assets. ILC Dover has pushed beyond traditional rigid water barriers and post-event strategies to develop forward-thinking, flexible technologies such as gate, wall, cover and plug systems that prevent flood damage. Our value proposition provides clients with facility resiliency via stored at “point-of-use” solutions that are deployable in minutes.
