The diagrams below show how houses can be protected in areas which are prone to flooding.
Write a report for a university, lecturer describing the information shown below.
Summarise the information by selecting and reporting the main features and make comparisons where relevant.
You should write at least 150 words.
The diagrams demonstrate houses avoiding flooding by using two different techniques. The first diagram represents how a stopbank functions for the cause, while the second shows the use of a freeboard to raise the level of buildings. Both diagrams note the 100-year flood level and how a building stands in each technique.
The former diagram indicates the stopbank on the left, which is the main operator of this method. The stopbank features a built-in freeboard, a berm, and a floodgate to control the amount of water in the internal pond. The freeboard marks 300mm higher than the 100-year flood level. And the cloud icon on the right-hand side explains how rain joins the system as the internal runoff.
The latter diagram utilizes the freeboard, so the building hovers 300 mm over the 100-year-flood line. Unlike the former, it does not create an inner system to deal with precipitation.
