Our Principal Hydrogeologist, Lee Clarke, attended the River Restoration Centre’s Natural Flood Management (NFM) training course this week.
NFM techniques are increasingly used to manage flood risk by restoring floodplain processes and increasing storage. Quickly identifying historical floodplains and areas for reconnection can help prioritise NFM activities.
Lee told us: “On the course, I was introduced to the Hydrogeomorphological cartographic method (HGM) in order to map historical floodplain boundaries and recognise floodplain restoration areas. It was highly interesting day, and I’ve taken a lot away from it.”
If you require a Flood Risk or Drainage Assessment to support a planning application or Environmental Impact Assessment, Envireau Water’s team of skilled hydrologists and hydrogeologists can help.
We are particularly experienced in negotiating permissions and consents in areas that are prone to flooding, which we do by developing well-reasoned technical justifications and negotiating with regulatory authorities.
Our expertise in drainage assessment and control together with water chemistry, quality and treatment enables us to consider discharge water holistically and to develop practical and pragmatic sustainable drainage solutions which are acceptable to the regulator.
