The combination of unprecedented rainfall and environmental fears about long-term climatic change have placed the legal provisions and administrative responsibilities concerning floods and land drainage under new scrutiny.

The purpose of this book is to examine these issues in a topical context and provide an account of the law which will be of value to those with relevant responsibilities and which is accessible to property owners for whom the operation of the law raises a series of vitally important practical issues.
