Although flow rates in the rivers of Lambayeque at times surpassed the 1982-1983 maximum flow, government projects to channel water out of the cultivated sectors of the valley were successful in preventing massive overbank flooding near Túcume, as had occurred in 1982-1983, in 1578, and presumably in other strong events.
