Navigating Flood Risks in Residential Development: Insights from Civil Engineering and Stormwater Management

Flooding is a natural disaster that can have profound effects on residential development, influencing property values, and shaping the landscape of urban planning. As climate change exacerbates the frequency and severity of flood events, understanding the impact of flooding and the role of engineering expertise in flood management becomes increasingly important.

The Impact of Flooding on Residential Development

Research has shown that flooding can lead to significant decreases in residential housing prices, with recovery times often extending beyond two years (AA Aliyu et al., 2016). The threat of future floods influences residential property development, as buyers become more aware of the associated risks (C Eves, 2002).
