UNEXPECTEDLY INTENSE RAINFALL

We have an extensive drainage system comprising 7,000km of drains and canals that channel rainwater to our reservoirs or the sea. Most times, our drains are able to cope with the rain that we receive. However, intense bouts of rainfall can sometimes exceed the capacity that the drains are designed for, resulting in flash floods. These floods are localised and generally subside in under an hour.
