dc.description.abstractFloods will continue to cause damage as long as development continues upon flood-prone lands. Inevitably flooding occurs, damage ensues, and peronal suffering and loss create a public burden of rescue and relief operations at the expense of all taxpayers. Flood control projects cannot protect against all damage, and not all flood hazard areas are amenable to flood control projects. An alternative to the continued construction of engineering works for flood protection is the management of the flood plain, which, to be effective, must be brought about through political and legal means. The purposes are to minimize the consequences of flooding and to achieve in the long run the optimum use of flood plains.en_US
