Increased flood risk results from improper location of new development along streams without adequate floodplain controls. Flood risk also increases because floodplain development is not prohibited along streams with adequate floodplain controls. In these circumstances, structures and infrastructure are placed to minimize exposure to frequent flood events (for example, less than 100- or 500-year magnitude), but are subject to flooding from large, infrequent floods. Although it is impossible for TVA to prevent an increase in the region's flood damage potential, given the proper resources, it can continue to minimize the rate of increase.
