Landmark Earth Solutions makes no representations or warranties concerning the appropriateness or performance of the RIBS technology at any particular site or in any particular situation and shall not be held liable for improper or incorrect selection, use, or deployment of the product. As with all flood barriers, unanticipated site characteristics or water conditions, misuse of the product or failure to properly follow the instructions can lead to severe flooding, property damage, injury and deaths. Emergency planning and actions must take into account the potential of barrier failure.
