Answered By:

The Drain London project has produced Surface Water Flood Risk Maps and a draft Surface Water Management Plan for every London borough. These were produced on time and achieved a significant budget saving, compared to each borough commissioning its own mapping. We are working with the Environment Agency, who is also working on flood risk maps, to make these publicly available by the end 2013.
