The objective of this report is to give a factual account of the flood in February 1990. Data on the flood has been gathered and we will make sure it is properly collated, indexed, mapped and distributed. We aim to enable lessons to be learnt and procedures will be amended where necessary. This report will ensure that the collective effort made by all those involved is recognised and that the positive issues are raised. The report contains information on the weather and catchment conditions taken from the Storm and Flood Report January to February 1990, by G M Merrick. Thoughts and recommendations on the effectiveness of Technical Services flood monitoring systems are given, along with additional recommendations. A summary of actions, the duty officer logs and discharge and level data are also provided.
