If your property is susceptible to flooding, there are many flood damage reduction measures you can employ:
Watertight seals can be applied to brick and block walls to protect against low-level flooding
Utilities such as heating and air conditioning systems, water heaters, and other major appliances can be elevated to higher floors in the structure or on raised platforms
Temporary measures such as moving furniture and other valuables to higher floors or sandbagging exterior openings will also help
Elevating or relocating the entire structure may also be a feasible option
The City's sandbagging plan is designed to keep critical roads, buildings, and services protected, not to protect every house in the City that might receive flooding.
