Italian term or phrase: tiranti idrici
È di fondamentale importanza che gli scenari di rischio evidenzino anche quei manufatti che possono influenzare la distribuzione dei deflussi, soprattutto se determinano vie preferenziali di tiranti idrici elevati.

Is there a precise English term for this?

hydraulic pump/drainage conduits/drainage apparatus/drainage system
Explanation:
It's hard to be sure without more text.

tiranti idrici may mean that they are using mechanical means for distributing the water, hence hydraulic pump or hydraulic head.

If on the other hand they are talking about a drainage system in general terms (which may or may not include a pump but would include pipes, conduits, fittings etc.) the correct translation is drainage system or any other of the above, depending upon the rest of the text.

This is an overflow distribution system (distribuzione dei deflussi)
