How are flood plains formed?

Sometimes, due to heavy rains or increases water levels, a river overflows its banks. This leads to the flooding of the neighbouring areas. As a result of these floods, layers of fine soil and other material called sediments gets deposited along its banks. This leads to the formation of a flat fertile floodplain. The raised banks are called levees.
