SAVE THE RAIN FEED THE PEOPLE
This web page is dedicated to changing building codes to create a sustainable future, reduce insurance claims, protect our natural resources, stop the death & decay, and make your homes a shelter as it should be.
Most of these post cover how building codes fail in many ways and create more disasters then prevent. However, this blog also bring in to light the fact that areas in our world that suffer Flash Floods also suffer from Drought later in the year. http://buildtoflowwithnaturenottoresistit.blogspot.com/2009/12/mr-president-umaru-yaraduaand-nigerian.html
How does building codes pertain to this issue, you ask. Well I will tell you, the Natural Disaster Environmental History Code http://buildtoflowwithnaturenottoresistit.blogspot.com/2010/09/2010-is-deadly-haiti-chile-turkey.html is a Building code that addresses the environment the structure is built in not just the structure. So if one lives in places like Zimbabwe, Nigerian or Australia where flood come hand-in-hand with droughts you need to harness the flood water with the structures design not build to hinder the waters flow. Furthermore, if Screen culvert pipes where placed under the flood plains outside a populated area as well as build Saddleback foundation system http://buildtoflowwithnaturenottoresistit.blogspot.com/2012/08/how-do-you-build-different.html with all buildings, water flow would be reduced, harnessed and stored away in man-made aquifer for later use in the summer months when water is scarce.
