Tide Control Stormwater Management
The experts at Shenandoah understand the growing concern that coastal communities have regarding tide control and stormwater management. Since 1976, Shenandoah has been a leader in helping coastal communities keep their rising tides in check. The stormwater drainage systems of coastal cities were in most cases built many decades ago. At the time of their installation most of these systems were built just a matter of inches or several feet above the sea level at the time. As sea levels have risen, seawater to enter the stormwater system. As seawater enters the stormwater system, the pressure it generates can push groundwater up and out of the system causing flooding of streets and communities.
We have been providing tide control and stormwater management to coastal communities for over 40 years.
To provide a solution, Shenandoah utilizes an ingenious check valve produced by WaStop. These valves come in various sizes depending on the diameter of the stormwater pipe where it empties into the seawall or bulkhead area. The WaStop valves can be easily installed in pipes of all types and sizes. The patented membrane technology allows the valve to flush out sediments and debris and the system exhibits the lowest headloss on the market along with 100% backflow prevention. Because the system works on differential pressure, the tide-controlled system functions autonomously without human interaction, electricity, or extensive maintenance. The result is that water from extensive rains can exit the stormwater system without the concern of seawater entering the system through backflow and forcing groundwater flooding.
