Hydrographs of two streams between 20th and 25th August 2005, periodic maximal discharge Qmax and hourly rainfall intensity from the nearest raingauge station on Mount Lisca. lying urban areas close to rivers suffer from the overflowing of sewers, rather than the overtopping of river banks. This happened in Lower Kersal, Greater Manchester in 1980, when prolonged regional rainfall caused flooding throughout the Mersey Basin and the high levels in the Irwell tributary caused sewers to back up and overflow through housing areas.

The IFMs are outlines of the area that could potentially be flooded in the absence of defences in a 1:100-year return period flood for fluvial floodplains and a 1:200-year return period flood for coastal floodplains. • 1:50,000 maps with 5 m contours.
