Finding a way to solve all of these problems is never easy, but it is important to make sure that you continue to look for ways that you can encourage others to help not only your friends, but many of the others who are still in need.
Axial Pumps and Other Line Shaft Pumps Provide Flood Relief to some Parts of the Country
The latest statistics from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers place from 100 million to many hundreds of millions of individuals in cities that could experience flooding within a generation. If you have watched the news this spring, for instance, you are aware of the devastating flooding that has occurred in the states of Nebraska, Missouri, Iowa, and South Dakota. Many of these families, however, are still dealing with the flooding effects even though the story has dropped of the radar of most Americans.
Historical research from the last 10 years indicates that since the year 2010, floods have cost America nearly $40 billion. Much of this work, of course, has been in the clean up process, but there are also specific expenses like axial pumps that are included.
