MOUNT ROYAL, N.J. - May 25, 2022 On April 22nd, the Federal Flood Team, a partnership between Floodproofing.com and Wilkinson Construction Company, had the opportunity to showcase its Sand-filled Flood Fighting System, PermaShield™ to the US Army Corp of Engineers Flood Fighting Division at the historic Rock Island Facility. The demonstration was a live deployment of this engineered product, highlighting the capabilities of PermaShield for combatting flooding, strengthening levees, and stabilizing dunes. "It was an honor to be given the time with the USACE at such a historic location to demonstrate one of our many products that help fight flooding," said Tom Little, President of Floodproofing.com. "And this is just one of a variety of solutions that could protect communities and help areas at risk of flood." The Federal Flood Team was created to provide floodproofing products and services for federal, local, and state contracts.
