Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) regulations require that nuclear plants be designed for the Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) as described in Regulatory Guide 1.59, “Design Basis Floods for Nuclear Power Plants”.
The Probable Maximum Flood (PMF) is the flood that may be expected from the most severe combination of critical meteorological and hydrologic conditions that are reasonably possible in a particular drainage area.
