Extraordinary Increases in Coastal Flooding

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) a trend of increased coastal flooding will continue to worsen as the climate crisis escalates.

Flooding along coast

“High tide flooding is becoming more commonplace across the U.S.” says the NOAA. Coastal areas around the United States, especially the gulf coast have been hit hard by flooding in recent years. Damaging high tide floods that once only occurred during large storms can now happen more often during full moons or prevailing winds. As sea levels continue to rise, coastal communities and their economies will suffer. The frequency of high tide flooding is expected to double or triple by 2030, according to the NOAA.

It’s important that communities and homeowners take the right steps to protect their infrastructure from these high tide floods over the next few years. Seawalls and retaining structures taken on by water will need to drain properly to reduce hydro static pressure and prevent erosion. Without proper drainage, infrastructure can crack, bow, and eventually fail. Jet Filter’s weep hole component is an innovative and efficient way to protect your coastline and infrastructure.

To effectively address the Culvert’s drainage challenges at hand, the proposed solution included the drilling of 16 new weep holes, each 26 inches deep, and the insertion of 16 units of the JET Filter 4” diameter open-end drainage system

What is a Weep Hole? Enhancing Drainage and Soil Stability with the Jet Filter Weep Hole System

Weep holes are critical elements in various construction materials including concrete, steel sheet piles, and vinyl walls. They serve a fundamental purpose in managing water within structures, particularly in preventing accumulation that can lead to structural damage or increased hydrostatic pressure. While traditionally associated with moisture control, weep holes also play a vital role in soil retention and stability.
