TAPCO High Water Warning Systems detect rising water levels and activate warning alerts, providing approaching drivers with advance warning of real-time road flooding.
Because the Memorial Boulevard area in Hagerstown, MD used to be a swamp, it is often subject to dangerous flooding. With an old clay pipe system and only one storm water collector, the town needed a reliable, cost-effective safety solution, so it turned to TAPCO.
“The system had to be designed a little bit differently, so it was customized by TAPCO. We had to figure all that out and they helped us do that.”
– Eric Deike
Director of Public Works for Hagerstown, MD
