Utility Teams Participate in Storm Surge Gate Training
June 16, 2017
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX - Recently, our Storm Water team hosted an annual training exercise on storm gate installations to ensure #CCisReady for hurricane season.
The exercise safeguards all personnel is familiar with the installation and removal of all storm gates. Having multiple teams aware of how the process works allows other crews to have flexibility so they can focus on other emergency storm gates in the event of a hurricane.
The five gates will be set up when tidal reading at the Port of Corpus Christi is at 4.5 feet. When this happens, all personnel will be alerted to begin installing storm gates.
