Protection Measures

For better protection against possible floods, building owners and residents can look into various flood protection measures.


PUB has been assisting and offering consultative advice to building owners whose premises were affected by recent flood incidents.

To better protect against floods, buildings can add structural measures such as humps and flood barriers to protect their basement levels from floodwaters. They can also link the water-level sensors in the basement carparks to their alarm systems in order to warn their users of flooding.

Residential premises

Apart from storing belongings on high levels, home-owners in the low-lying areas can look in to having floor boards or sand bags on standby.
