Post subject:  Flood protection solution.

Waterproofing of homes will prove to be too expensive and ineffective. The best cost effective solution is a removable flood barrier around the perimeters on the homes and buildings.

The pavements could be utilised for this purpose. At the front of the pavement a trench could be dugout and flood pipes laid, or a type of French drain method used. Then pylon holes drilled out around 125mm diameter and lined every 1800mm. In the event of an imminent flood, removable flood barriers are slotted into place along the pavement, which are held in place by long poles that drop into the pre drilled holes.
