Flood Risk Mitigation
Flood protection. Climate resilience. Safer communities.
At SEH, we help communities undertake a variety of flood risk management and mitigation projects – from concept through construction and long-term support.
We help communities select the most appropriate flood mitigation measures in response to local conditions. These measures protect residents from catastrophic flooding events and preserve the ambience of the community.
After the evaluation and selection process, we design safe, attractive and functional flood management facilities: sustainable levees, floodwalls, pumping stations, bypass channels, reservoirs, and earthen and concrete dams.
- Floodwalls and retaining walls
- Dams, levees and reservoirs
- Stormwater drainage and management
- Watercourse restoration
- Hydraulic and hydrologic modeling
- Inflow and infiltration (I&I) studies
- Value engineering
- Funding acquisition
