Flood MapFlooding in Calderdale is becoming increasingly common and although it is rarely on a scale that creates national headlines, we have seen a number of damaging floods in the last 30 years, including those during the summer of 2012.

While flooding from main rivers can be predicted, one-off floods can occur unexpectedly and have a significant impact.  These floods typically arise from surface water, canals, smaller watercourses, blocked culverts and road drainage and affect almost anywhere.
