Syngenta Flood Protection

Syngenta’s Crop Protection Plant in Omaha is located alongside the Missouri River between the I-80 and Highway 275 bridges. After the river flooded in 2010, the plant required protection from rising waters and had to employ temporary flood berms. Since the building is in the city’s drainage way, they decided they needed a permanent solution to protect against future floods. Hawkins built a flood protection system by excavating clay from the site and then constructing earthen berms, concrete walls, vinyl sheet piling, and a removable/stackable gasketed aluminum plank system. The project also included a canopy, new vestibule, and landscaping.
