Abstract

The increased intensity of infrastructural development in Uyo metropolis has given rise to land sites that have larger portions of non – permeable surfaces. A problem caused by little or no drainage and in some cases overloaded drainage infrastructure. This situation combined with the intense rainfall in the city gives rise to flooding in different locations. Flooding being one of the major ways water is introduced into building construction environment raises the cost of building since it impedes the construction and may eventually cause costly damage to the building. This study has identified flood-prone areas in Uyo municipality and has recommended measures to be taken in order to mitigate its effects on buildings.
