Description

Why do rivers flood and what can be done to reduce the risk to communities? In this location based program we investigate why some rivers flood more quickly than others, and the effects that this can have on communities. The differences between pluvial and fluvial flooding are explained, and we see how building housing developments on floodplains can massively increase the risk of more severe flooding. The use of community flood prevention measures is examined and we look at measures that individual homeowners have taken to reduce the risk of floodwater damage to their properties.
