A check valve or non-return valve can be installed in pipes that are vulnerable to backflow during various flood conditions. The valve will work by blocking the flow of water if it is entering in the wrong direction. This will help with flooding control, standing water control, and water quality issues. Different size and shape valves can be used, as needed.
