12 Causes of 2011 FLOOD Unusual run off from August to October 2011 to Nakhon Sawan Province which maximum flow of 4,686 cm./s, volume of flow was 36,961 mcm. which was 9,890 mcm. more than volume in 1995 flood. Water management : water resources development 2.1 capacity and potential of water resources development projects was not enough to cope with unusual run off. 2.2 water management tools eg. Sluice gate, drainage systems, pumps etc. which is a limitation of present situation but relevant to the past 50 years situation.
