In the Seaport and parts of the Two Bridges and Financial District neighborhoods Emergency Management (EM) will spend $3.5 million to deploy a combination of just-in-time Tiger Dams and pre-deployed HESCO barriers by the 2019 hurricane season as temporary measures in advance of a permanent solution. These temporary interventions, including "just in time" water-filled dams to be deployed in event of a storm and pre-deployed sand-filled barriers, will be employed along an alignment of just over a mile and protect against a 10-year flood.
