Good reply, thanks.

What I don't understand, is that many of these established drainage systems, as you rightly point out, haven't been maintained for decades. But of course, you're right to point out, that even the engineers who worked on those projects a long time ago (even before we had mention of this concept of climate change etc), are only barely still around, who understood their value and how they're supposed to function. I've come across at least half a dozen, to a dozen in my travels.

You're point is well made though, and I agree.

What I do notice though, are the younger generation of engineers who would have been tasked in the past, with the maintenance of the same systems - are still tasked with flooding policy documentation - they're deploying an increasing number of the best qualified civil engineers who are around these days, on the flooding policy problem. However, in my experience, a lot of those are getting deployed on the computational and modeling side of the work - and far less, and less on the maintenance project administration side.

I don't know who has the right explanation for that - except that I can only guess - there are a lot of agencies involved today, a lot of groups, for example the United Kingdom weather forecasting service and so on. That's just the way that it's been for the last ten years. No investment flowing towards the systems that you mention, and an increasing amount of the human resources talent getting deployed into various funded research schemes, aimed at computation and modeling.
