Stage 2 Report: What is it?

An investigation into the flooding mechanisms and contributory factors that led to flooding on 12 and 25 July 2021

Stage 2 Report

The Stage 2 Report is the second of four key stages in the London Flood Review.

During Stage 2, we used the data and models we collected in Stage 1 to assess the flooding mechanisms (the potential causes of flooding) that were involved in the July 2021 flooding events. This will help us to identify how significant each contributing factor was to the impact of the flooding.

We will be using the data gathered during Stage 1 and Stage 2 as ‘baseline data’ to help us get a clearer picture of the ‘what, when, why and how’ of the flooding events. We will then base our recommendations on these findings.
