FAQs

Flooding in Australia is commonly caused by heavy rainfall, cyclones, storm surges, riverine flooding, flash floods, and tidal inundation. Urbanisation, inadequate drainage, deforestation, and climate change worsen flood risks.

Assessing flood risk involves evaluating factors like proximity to water bodies (including hidden sources), historical data, topography, the amount of impermeable paving, drains, and land use. As a specialist, John tailors assessments to your property or community and offers various mitigation strategies.

A range of solutions may be available depending on the flood type, property, and location. The solution may include elements of both wet and dry floodproofing. Dry proofing aims to keep the water out, whilst wet proofing aims to make the property more resilient to internal flooding and allow people to return to their homes and businesses faster.

Selecting flood protection solutions depends on factors like flood risk level, property construction characteristics, budget, and people issues. A tailored recommendation, including structural protection solutions and non-structural emergency management procedures, will follow a detailed study through on-site and desk-top analysis.
