Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019, defines fluvial as: ‘Relating to a river.’

A fluvial audit is: ‘The establishment of baseline hydromorphological form and behaviour for a river reach in the context of conditions prevailing in the wider river network and catchment as a whole. Also known as geomorpholocial or hydromorphological assessment, river reconnaissance and geomorphological audit.’

The word 'pluvial' relates to rainfall.
