Flood Protection

The Freuchie Mill area in Fife Scotland has always been prone to flooding and residents in the local community have learnt to live with the fear of heavy rainfall.

However this fear now be something of the past, following the successful installation of Scotland’s first Self Closing Flood Barrier from UK Flood Barriers at the site.

The new flood defence system uses the power of the rising flood water to automatically positions the barrier, which then raises and stays ahead of the flood. The barrier is only 2 metres wide but will provide the local community with peace of mind. This proves that environmental planning is needed in order to have minimal impact on the environment.
