In line with the Flood and Water Management Act 2010, we maintain a record of assets that have a significant impact on the risk of flooding.
An asset is a structure or feature that can affect the flow or storage of water. For example, a wall next to a river could stop water from flooding houses during heavy rain. The wall could be considered an asset. Pipes in the ground, bridges and road gullies are other examples of assets that can affect flood risk.
The asset register contains information about the location, condition and ownership (where available) of each asset. For areas at risk of flooding, see Your Flood Risk. For more about the risk of flooding, visit the Environment Agency.
