If floods are a frequent thing, on a long term basis, growing trees may slow down the force of the flow of water. Example- stretches of mangroves prevented damage along Indian coastline during the Tsunami.

The building of gateways, a sluice or a spillway to carry water away from towns/communities will help in preventing a major flood.
