ABSTRACT: 

Nigeria is the most populous Black race country in Africa and in the world with a total land area of 983,213 km2  occupied by over 160 Million people: The interaction of these millions of people with their environment has left indelible mark  on the  landscape.  Urbanization, deforestation,  flooding,  desertification, over population  and  all  kinds  of  pollution  are  some  of  the  resultant  effects  of  man’s interaction with his environment. These changes result from the populace attempt to achieve  their  seemingly  endless  desire  for  food,  shelter,  recreation  and infrastructural facilities and urbanization in general. This has placed a lot of pressure on the environment. Flooding has become the annual experience of Nigerian cities especially in Aba, Abia State where it has causes economic stampede in the rainy seasons  of the  year.  Effort  made by the government and residents to  forestall the menace has produced sub-optimal results. There is hence, the need to adopt more proactive, standard and reliable procedures that can  give sustainable outcome and restore the socio-economics growth of the urban centre.
