Wildfire

Wildfire_Resiliency

In 2020, there were 22 catastrophic weather- and climate-related events with losses exceeding $1 billion in the U.S. One event was a wildfire. With the size and frequency of wildfires growing, the likelihood of wildfires in many areas of the country is still low.

Did you know?

Heat dissipates so quickly through soil that storm sewer buried at least one foot underground, without exposed ends, is unaffected by fires.

Resiliency

Resiliency is the ability to anticipate, endure, and rapidly recover from a disruptive event—like wildfire. 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 wildfires occur, they burn at around 800 °C–a temperature at which all stormwater pipe materials degrade.  All materials are degraded by wildfire.  No material used today in stormwater infrastructure is designed to completely withstand a wildfire. If you have a project in an area that is at risk for wildfire, your ADS rep can assist with accepted risk mitigation techniques.

When

When wildfires occur, ADS makes rapid recovery possible. With our nationwide distribution network, customers have easy access to solutions from one end-to-end supplier for reduced time, coordination, and costs–further enhanced by three times faster installation compared to competitors. 

Ready for the If

Extreme Events require Extreme Performance. Shouldn’t your stormwater solution be part of the climate solution as well? ADS’ products live at the intersection of resilient and sustainable.
