Flood Prevention?

Cause or Solution?: 
Solutions to flooding
Question: 
What actual measures have been put in place to prevent flooding like we had on Boxing Day 2015? The water levels of the Rochdale Canal have been very high for weeks now and there does not appear to have been any manual movement of water through the canal locks. With the current heavy rain, the power of the river increasing, the likelihood of flood seems very high. And there is little evidence of any action other than some river dredging months ago.
