Although only a few meters above sea level Maisemore Gardens,
unlike some other areas of Emsworth, has never been affected by flooding. For
information The Environment Agencies definitive "flood plain" map is
below together with some of their notes.
The map shows the natural river and
coastal floodplains in England and Wales. A floodplain is the natural
'overspill' area when a river rises above its banks or when high tides or stormy
seas cause flooding of low-lying coastal areas. River floodplains are coloured
blue. Coastal floodplains are coloured green. Some areas are at risk of flooding
from rivers and the sea. In this case the colour of the flooding with the
greatest extent will be shown.
They use the best information available based on computer models, survey data
and historical records and will be updated as new information becomes available.
For flooding from rivers the maps indicate the extent of flooding for a one in
one hundred (or a one per cent) chance of flooding each year
For flooding from the sea and tidal estuaries, the maps show a one in two
hundred (or 0.5 per cent) chance of flooding each year
It is important to remember that the risk of a flood occurring is there at all
times - this year, next year and future years
Being in a floodplain doesn't mean your home or business will
definitely be flooded - many other factors come into the equation. The maps are
a guide and should prompt people who live near a river or the sea to be aware
and find out more."
