Wall for Flood Control

Silver
2008

The Wall for Flood Control minimizes flood damage by automatically responding to the amount of the water flow. It requires no manual operation or power source; it uses the buoyant force of water to deploy itself. As the water level increases, the wall, which normally floats, stands up, forming a barrier. When the water level is low, the wall can be used as a walkway.
