However, what is not debatable are the astonishing costs that these bad weather incidents wreak on the US economy.
Whether the levee breaks or a storm surge inundates our customer’s house or office, flooding can quickly overwhelm the best maintained water purification and sewage disposal systems, which often results in garbage, assorted waste even toxic waste sites, and stored chemicals that end up finding their way onto your client’s property.
