Hurricane Preparedness & Response


The official hurricane season in the United States takes place from May through November, with the peak season from mid-August to late October. Xylem can help make sure you are prepared.

Well in advance of catastrophic weather events, Xylem works with cities and counties to create contingency plans to map out emergency response strategies and identify the required pumping equipment to react to natural disasters.

Emergency response is at the heart of what we do. We have been responding to weather related events for over 35 years, and turnkey installations are our specialty. Let us prove to you that we are the most reliable and responsive team for disaster recovery in the industry.

We'll work with you to create a plan of action in case disaster strikes, because we:

  • Have the right equipment for the job. With a broad portfolio of pumps and water management equipment, no one offers a wider selection than Xylem. We also offer rental equipment, which is a great fit for emergency flood and emergency sewer bypass situations.
  • Have a reliable system that works. Because we design and build our own equipment, we understand how it works best and create systems to match equipment to the needs of communities dealing with the aftermath of hurricanes.
  • Have a support team committed to your safety and success. The experienced Xylem team provides contingency plans, turnkey services, and a large inventory of equipment to meet your needs. We are here to help build your flood relief contingency plan ahead of the storm and we are ready to respond when wet weather disasters strike.
