What is a Flood Assessment?

A flood assessment is a detailed analysis that evaluates the risk of flooding for a particular area or property. This involves:

– Analyzing the Site’s Topography:

We study the land’s shape and features to understand how water flows across it.

– Reviewing Surface Cover:

We look at what’s on the land (like buildings, roads, and vegetation) to see how it affects water movement.

– Using Historical Data:

We examine past flood events and water levels to predict future risks.

What is an Overland Flow Study?

Overland flow refers to the movement of water across the land’s surface when it rains heavily. Our overland flow studies include:

– Mapping Water Pathways:

We identify where water will flow during heavy rainfall and how it could affect properties and infrastructure.

– Model Calibration:

Using advanced software, we create models that simulate water movement to predict potential flooding scenarios.

– Data Collection:

Gathering local rainfall data, soil types, and other environmental factors helps us create accurate models.
