Why is Scott Lane and the Asda area flooding again ?

I thought the Bottling Wood Dam was supposed to prevent all that by controlling the flow of the River Douglas after heavy rainfall .

Has it been a waste of money ?

Scott Lane and the Asda area is flooding again because of it being situated on a fault-line which has flooded regularly throughout history. Damming the River Douglas upriver cannot, and will not, stop it.
