A tidal flat affects the stream of the water around its area. It relieves the rapid increases in streams due to floods, stores it and lets it flow little by little over a manageable period.

A tidal flat adjusts the amount of flooding in a short period thus reducing the damages to persons and properties and plays a buffering role for reducing the impact of typhoons as they approach the shoreline.
