Find the return period in years of the critical event, Mathematics

1. A drainage system overflows into a river causing pollution when the rainfall falling in an hour exceeds 50 mm. During any given year, the maximum hourly rainfall follows an exponential distribution with mean 20 mm. Find the return period (in years) of the critical event that causes pollution in the river.
