Property Protection

Property Protection
If you have a basement, take preventive measures from flooding due to sewer backup or sump pump failure by installing a check valve. Elevate or relocate the following items to areas less likely to be subjected to flood waters:
  • Electrical Panel Boxes
  • Fuel Tanks
  • Furniture and Other Valuables
  • Heat Pumps
  • Washers and Dryers
  • Water Heaters
Retrofitting
Retrofit your buildings to reduce / eliminate flood damage. References and additional documents pertaining to retrofitting and floodplain management are available at the public library. As you plan, consider:
  • Dry Floodproofing
  • Elevation
  • Flood Barriers
  • Wet Floodproofing
Supplies
It's also a good idea to keep sandbags, plywood, lumber, and plastic sheeting around to minimize damage not only from floodwaters, but hurricane-force winds.
