Flooding has always been a problem for certain areas and with climate change, the problem has gotten worse and for some places. Unfortunately, it will continue to do so.

Turns out that they use a variety of temporary and permanent barrier methods as well as various management systems. Barriers can be concrete walls and glass or steel frames that erected during times of danger.
Natural flood prevention uses the environment to help drain and lead water away before it has a chance to overwhelm populated areas. This uses the landscape and series of ditches and run offs. As flooding becomes more prevalent, systems like these will be of the upmost importance for those who live in areas that are prone to be underwater at a moment’s notice.
