What is typically referred to as overland flow is the concentration of run-off during a rainfall event flowing overland to a larger waterway. Typically overland flow paths lead to major creeks and rivers. Sometimes an overland flow path will represent what used to be a creek in a highly urbanised area which now has a pipe and road network. Overland flow still represents flood risk and can damage property. It occurs during large rainfall and/or storm events and the speed and volume of flow will vary from one event to another.
What is Overland Flow?
Has Council or your certifier required that you obtain an overland flow report for your building project, rennovation or development?

Then MRG can help you!
