As development pressures rise along the Barrage reach of the Vaal River so also do the costs of flood damage. By means of computer-operated flood plain management programs developed in the Hydrological Research Unit it has been possible to determine the heights to which floods of various recurrence intervals are likely to rise, and thus to delineate areas that would be affected.
