Earthquake

Earthquake_Resiliency

In 2020, there were 22 catastrophic weather- and climate-related events with losses exceeding $1 billion in the U.S. None of those events were earthquakes. However, seismic activity of lower magnitude is frequent across known fault-line regions of the US.

Did you know?

Flexible systems are less likely to sustain damage than rigid structures when there is seismic activity, earthquake, or ground movement of any kind.

Resiliency

Resiliency is the ability to anticipate, endure, and rapidly recover from a disruptive event–like an earthquake. That’s why our industry-leading solutions are engineered for the if, ready for the when. Together, these solutions create efficient stormwater systems that maintain function and strength when faced with both expected everyday stressors and extreme events.

If

If earthquakes occur, the ground moves and shakes. Thermoplastic pipe and gasketed joints are designed for performance during these extreme events. Unlike the competition’s, our pipes are flexible and able to withstand ground movement and retain system integrity. Our products have reduced leaks, which means fewer potholes and decreased chances for system failure.
