Langan offers diverse strategies to help clients mitigate flood risk
Following Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Superstorm Sandy in 2012, the public developed a heightened awareness of the effects of storm surge and sea level rise (SLR). As storms become more extreme and ocean surface heights continue to increase due to climate change, normal tides and storm surge flood elevations will also continue to rise. In response, municipalities and land owners are developing flood risk reduction strategies for individual sites, while cities around the world have installed massive retractable gates that provide storm surge protection.
Yet when it comes to resiliency planning, one solution does not fit all.

TECH FOCUS: GIS FOR LINEAR PROJECTS
Linear construction projects – or projects that take place within public or private rights-of-way where contamination is encountered – are a growing part of Langan’s work as utility companies upgrade their systems for expanding energy needs, modernize their networks, and address issues around the resiliency of their systems. Langan supports our utility clients by combining our GIS (Geographic Information System) capabilities with our site evaluation, project planning, site design, and regulatory constraints analysis services.
