RMS Flood Data

Overview
RMS pluvial flood data is a modelled dataset, which uses land height, predicted rainfall and a huge variety of other factors to predict both flooding from rivers and, for the first time in Great Britain, surface water flooding, a key factor for flood predications in urban areas.

RMS flood data covers:

  • Flood Hazard 75 Year Return Period
  • Flood Hazard 100 Year Return Period
  • Flood Hazard 1000 Year Return Period

Please note the RMS data model does not take into account Coastal/Storm Surge Flooding, Dam Failure Flooding, Sewer Overflow Flooding or risk of flooding from the sea.
