Structural measures concentrate on catchment administration, embankments and flood reservoirs. Post-flood measures also are mentioned.
destiny making plans of flood administration may be in accordance with a transparent knowing of the effectiveness interventions and their affects on river catchment ecosystems.

Source controls are one such practice; they take different forms at the farmstead and field levels. (b) In this paper, source controls are classified as those primarily directed at controlling runoff quantity (which also mitigate water quality impacts) and those 25 concerned with runoff quality. As is the case in urban areas, the former generally have a longer history than the latter. This classification is somewhat artificial. For example, early practices for reducing runoff also reduced erosion and sediment in receiving waters.
