This document presents criteria to establish design basis flooding for nuclear safety-related features at power reactor sites. Methodology is described to evaluate the flood having virtually no risk of exceedance that can be caused by precipitation and snowmelt and any resulting dam failures, seismically induced dam failures, surge or seiche and attendant wind-generated wave activity, or a reasonable combination of these events.
