Set C - Fluvial flood extent and depth maps
Three sets of maps have been produced in support of the Environment Agency's latest Flood Maps, Set C, Set D and Sets E-F.
These maps should be considered as a complementary suite of broad scale flood risk information sources in support of the Environment Agency Flood Zone Maps and no one map should be considered in isolation without reference to the others. See 'Downloads', please note some maps are very large file sizes.
All maps show flood extents and flood water depths, which are colour coded to represent various depth ranges.
The fluvial flood extent and depth maps show the potential scale of flood inundation during overtopping of different standards of flood defence during a range of flood events. (They do not include the input of a breach or failure of defences)
Each map sheet shows four different sub-maps in boxes, each with their own particular characteristics. Each box relates to a standard of protection afforded to the land adjacent to the Main Rivers and the magnitude of the fluvial flood event being considered.
