In addition to random generation, a scroll of flood will be generated on top of a gravestone that reads "Apres moi, le deluge"; the phrase is French for "After me, the flood".
If the scroll is uncursed, it creates water around you in a similar fashion to an overflowing fountain, but with a higher probability per square, and a chance of including your own square. If the scroll is blessed, it will not create a pool underneath you. A cursed scroll restricts the flood to the square you're standing on, which could be useful when levitating over a tile of lava with something valuable sunk into it.
In Slash'EM Extended, the scroll of flood may be read by monsters as well; none of the pools will be created directly underneath the player in this case.
xNetHack's scroll of water is very similar, except it will never create a pool of water under the player.
