The word 'overflowing' can refer to: 'The passage of water over a component such as a road or railway embankment or river-bank due to high water level. Overflowing does not necessarily represent 'failure' of an asset to perform its function.' Ref Culvert, screen and outfall manual, (CIRIA C786) published by CIRIA in 2019.
