Such a system works perfectly for homes that need instant and effective yet non-permanent flood control. Flood control on the lower floodplains involves building levees to contain the flow and straightening or dredging the channel to improve flow characteristics. Concern over the affects of channelization on rivers in floodplains has led to the development of flood-control approaches that attempt to combine the way floodplains naturally handle.

    The flood damage data such as flood affected area, affected cropped area, number of affected villages and affected population have been collected for the same period as in the case of hydrological.
