What is Flood Mitigation?

Flood mitigation is the process of taking action to reduce or prevent flood damage. Floods are one of the most common natural disasters in the world, and they can cause devastation to homes, businesses, and infrastructure. Taking steps to mitigate flood risk can help reduce the impact of floods on communities and protect people and property from flood damage.

There are many different flood mitigation strategies that can be employed, depending on the specific flood hazard and the area at risk. Some common flood mitigation measures include:


- Building flood defences such as levees, dykes, and embankments

- Creating flood detention basins to store floodwater

- Planting vegetation to absorb runoff

- Improving drainage systems

- Modifying building construction standards to flood-proof structures

Flood mitigation is an important part of risk management and disaster preparedness. By taking action to reduce flood risk, we can protect people and property from the devastating impacts of floods.

What Causes Floods?

There are many causes of floods, but the most common is heavy rain. When rain falls more rapidly than the ground can absorb it, runoff builds up and can cause flooding. Other causes of flood include broken levees or dams, melting snow, and even tsunamis.

Why is flood mitigation important?

Flooding can cause great damage to homes, businesses, and infrastructure. It can also lead to loss of life. That's why flood mitigation is so important.

Help Is Just 1 Hour Away

Cole and mike did an outstanding job cleaning and restoring our travertine floors. The results were like night and day -nicely cleaned and rough patches honed and restored. They took great care not to damage the natural stone. The master shower was in particularly bad shape but they managed to hone, restore and seal it until it looked beautiful.
