Title: Levels of service for urban and rural flood defence
Author: National Rivers Authority Thames Region
Document Type: Monograph
A drainage authority has permissive powers to protect customer interests within the floodplain. This is achieved through the provision o f capital works, maintenance programmes, the operation of river structures, a flood warning system and advice to local planning authorities on the drainage implications of new development. This document is concerned with levels of service for flood defence and land drainage. Levels of service for NRA Thames Region's other responsibilities in relation to customer interests are to be covered elsewhere.
