Flooding is the inundation of land with water. It is occurs when a water course overflows its banks, or where rainfall intensity over a period of time is so great that the drainage infrastructure within an area is unable to cope with the resulting runoff.


Flooding severity and or frequency are possible service level measures that could be incorporated into an Asset Management Plan for Drainage.
