The flood risk maps essentially describe the main adverse consequences of the predicted flood for each of the flood event scenarios. 

What do flood maps show?

The data used to describe the adverse consequences is collated and displayed on a 250m grid and includes information such as:

  • the number of inhabitants who could be adversely affected
  • the affect on economic activity (in terms of the monetary damage)
  • the locations of flood prone industrial sites that might cause accidental pollution and in particular where this could impact nationally important environmental areas
