We saw last week how floods happen. Now let’s take a look at the major methods of flood control.
Barriers are the first thing people instinctively turn to when they see a flood, no matter what its size.
And then there are those among us who stand on the seashore, looking out over the ocean and thinking, “What a waste of really good land…”
(Note: I don’t know who Ernest Kleinberg was, but this 30-minute 1950s or 1960s film is both informative and enjoyable to watch.)
Next week, we’ll look at how people manage rivers to control flooding. Then we’ll wrap up this three-part series with brief looks at how flooding is managed in Dhaka, Bangladesh; Jackson, Mississippi; and London, England.
